July 14-15, 2016, Killeen, Texas
Jumpstart Free Health Clinic is a christian health outreach program of Adventist Laymen’s Service and Industries (ASI) - southwest chapter and Your Best Pathway to Health. Its mission is to deliver completely free health services through mobile multispecialty clinics to residents of cities within the states of Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and New Mexico.
ASI is a group of approximately 1000 Seventh-day Adventist business owners, professionals and supporting ministries who support the church through various outreach programs; which include health, education, evangelism, community services, family concerns and special projects.
Pathway to Health is a non-profit organization that exists to serve the physical needs of the under-served by providing entirely free mobile multi-specialty clinics that offer medical, surgical, dental, eye care, and other critical services. To date, these clinics have provided more than 40 million dollars in free health services to over 20,000 individuals in the U.S.
Seventh-day Adventists believe in whole person health which includes physical, mental and spiritual health. If one part of the triad is missing, the individual’s entire health is affected.
The health outreach events are staffed by a volunteer corps of experienced medical and dental providers, helpful hospitality workers, lifestyle counselors and chaplains caring for the whole-person needs of each patient. As a christian outreach program following the Pathway to Health model, Jumpstart exists to serve as Jesus served and to love the residents of each host city as Jesus did.
