Marcus Boyd Shook_photo As a clinic volunteer Boyd has worked almost every Saturday for 19 years. He directs other volunteers and advises them about each one’s role in this clinic. He treats almost 200 patients with the help of other volunteers each Saturday. He orders medication each week after discussing the medication needs with the pharmacy volunteers. He also orders supplies as needed. During the week, he arranges referrals to specialists if possible. Boyd has developed an electronic medical record system that keeps track of medication utilization, patients seen, and diagnoses established.


David Pham
David Pham_photoI started volunteering at Manos Juntas Clinic during my freshman year in college. I started only coming every other weekend helping with the triage of patients. The more I came, the more I found myself enjoying the many experiences I had by interacting with the patients, fellow volunteers, and physicians. I currently volunteer on a regular basis performing triage, shadowing physicians, and helping with various laboratory tasks. I would sum up my experience here at Manos Juntas as very educational, fulfilling, and throughly enjoyable.

Casey Prammanasudh_photo My name is Casey Prammanasudh and I’ve been volunteering at Manos Juntas since January of 2009. I usually work in triage and in the lab. I enjoy interacting with the patients and I like the hands-on aspect of these two positions. I am currently applying to medical school and working on a master’s degree in public health. Volunteering at the clinic has turned out to be my primary inspiration for entering into public health. I have always been interested in both human rights and medicine as an undergraduate student, and working at the clinic has given me an opportunity to combine those two passions.


Dat and Jennifer Pham
Dat and Jennifer Pham_photoDat and Jennifer Pham have been volunteers for the Manos Juntas Clinic for over 9 years. They graduated from Southwestern Oklahoma State University College of Pharmacy in the fall of 2007. Last year they decided to become a permanent family by becoming married in a beautiful ceremony. Their contribution to Manos Juntas has been magnificent and above and beyond. They have assured quality in managing the pharmaceuticals of the clinic.


Hailon Wong
Hailon Wong_photoHi, my name is Hailon, and I have been volunteering at Manos Juntas for a little over a year now, and I am really enjoying it. My sister was a former volunteer here and introduced me to this clinic during my first year of college, and I am exceedingly grateful that she did. The best part of this clinic is the variety of people that you meet, from patients and fellow volunteers to knowledgeable doctors and medical students. Interacting with this variety of people has not only taught me important skills, such as taking a patient's blood pressure, but has also taught me the value of service to others and exposed me to many different perspectives. These perspectives have added to my own and enriched it. I hope to continue volunteering at Manos Juntas in the years to come to see what else I can learn.

Virgil Stout_photoI have lived in Oklahoma all my life except for four years that I was in the Navy during the Vietnam war.  I worked for 26 years for Kerr-McGee Corporation as a computer programmer and retired in 1994.  I have almost always volunteered at something.  I spent 16 years volunteering at Contact (now Heartline), a telephone service where anyone with any problem can call and find a listening ear to hear them.  I helped with a food pantry that provided food to persons living with AIDS for five years, and helped with the Church of the Open Arms food pantry for one year.  I have volunteered at the Manos Juntas medical clinic for about five years.  For the last year I have been responsible for coordinating the volunteers from Epworth UMC.   We are responsible for checking in clients and organizing client files.  I find the work at the Manos Juntas clinic to be very rewarding.  Each time I work I am awed at seeing the work that is being done by a wonderful group of volunteers.  I believe that many of the clients truly have no other viable option for getting health care.  Many have chronic conditions that would significantly reduce their quality of life if they did not have the medications that are given out at this clinic.


Daisy Colindres
Daisy Colindres_photoMy name is Daisy Colindres. I have a Masters Degree in General Education. Currently I am working as a teacher of Spanish and English as a Second Language at Dove Science Academy. I have worked at the Manos Juntas Free Clinic at Epworth Methodist Church for six years. My duties include preparing patient’s information folders for the doctors. Once the patients have seen the doctor, I enter all patient information, prescriptions, etc. into the computer program and return the paper work to the patient folder.  Then the folders are filed and ready for patient’s next visit. Working at this clinic has been a very rewarding experience for me.
