Report to the Community 2018/2019
Message from the President and Executive Director One year ago we celebrated MobileMed’s half century of service to the community. As MobileMed moves forward into its sixth decade, the central pillars of our organization remain strong. Our mission, values, and dedicated staff continue to drive our pursuit of the best healthcare for Montgomery County’s most disadvantaged residents. And we could not succeed without generous investments by our donors and volunteers. This has been a year of continued growth. In FY2019, MobileMed staff and volunteers again served more patients, delivering a record number of medical and behavioral health encounters. New grants have enabled us to expand hours at our East County clinic, initiate a new family planning option, and address substance use disorder. We are proud of receiving from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services a coveted quality improvement award as a Health Center Quality Leader.
Our eight primary care clinics – including three mobile van sites and two onsite clinics at area homeless shelters – continue to ensure access throughout the County for adults facing economic, cultural, language or other barriers to care. We also offer weekly specialty clinics for heart and endocrine issues, and women’s health. Support from individuals is integral to our community impact and to our devotion to never turning away a patient due to the inability to pay. We also are fortunate to have a dedicated and passionate corps of nearly seventy volunteers in our clinics. Ten of these volunteer providers have been with us for a decade or more, and we deeply appreciate their longstanding commitment. We are similarly indebted to our committed board and committee members who contribute their time and expertise. In particular, we honor the immense contributions made by three individuals who passed away in 2019. David Davidson, Sheldon Grosberg, and Rex Reed were longtime MobileMed Board members, valued advisors, and community ambassadors. As we look forward, we hope a new generation of supporters will follow the grand example set by these friends of MobileMed. MobileMed’s board and management are engaged in a strategic planning exercise that lays out an ambitious vision for our next decade. This organization is committed to achieving greater heights in delivering respectful, high-quality, culturally competent care to our Montgomery County neighbors in need.

Peter F. Lowet Executive Director
We honor the memory of former Board Presidents Sheldon Grosberg and Hon. David Davidson

Spotlight on Volunteers MobileMed’s volunteer providers help us serve our high patient volume and allow us to offer a diverse range of specialty care to meet our patients’ needs. Dr. Paul Burka has been volunteering with MobileMed since 2010 and has loved being a part of the organization. Dr. Burka is one of our volunteer gynecologists, and donates most of his volunteer hours at MobileMed's Women’s Clinic. When asked why he continues to dedicate his time to MobileMed he replied, “seeing patients come in worried, and then leave here relieved, because we’re dealing with their problem, that’s what it’s all about.”
Dr. Jennifer Pippins is a regular volunteer at our East Montgomery Clinic. She sees her volunteer time as an opportunity to reflect. She remarks “being here grounds me and reminds me that while we’ve made many advances as a medical community, those advances are not accessible to everyone. As health care providers and involved citizens, part of our job has to be to bridge that gap.”
Maryam Mahdi supports the work of our providers at Rollins Clinic through her service as a facilitator. She started volunteering at MobileMed because she intends to enroll in medical school. Maryam has found MobileMed to be a valuable learning experience and particularly appreciates the organization’s focus on serving underprivileged communities. Dr. Stephen Vaccarezza is one of our volunteer nephrologists. He began working with MobileMed as a Lent commitment, one which has now extended into over a decade of volunteer service. When asked about his dedication he explained, “I enjoy working with these patients. We get them care that they can’t afford and that makes all the difference for them.”
Patience Brook has been volunteering as a clinic facilitator in our East Montgomery Clinic for over two years. She is a premed student at the University of Maryland and also donates her time tutoring students in Silver Spring. Every semester she ensures that her class scheduled allows her to keep volunteering. We hope that her involvement with MobileMed and youth education will help Patience reach her goal of practicing pediatric medicine.
