In 2009, Dr. Ahmad Nooristani recognized the need to provide care to uninsured adults in SLO County. The SLO Noor Foundation opened in October 2011 as a 501(c)3 to aid this problem by providing free, high quality acute, non-emergent health care to those who could not otherwise afford to access care in San Luis Obispo County.
At the SLO Noor Foundation we understand the obstacles and challenges the uninsured face in our community when trying to receive the acute, non-emergent, care they need. The Foundation works to mitigate the effect on our community of the growing number of uninsured adults residing in our neighborhoods, the increasing risk of poor health conditions impacted by the lack of insurance, and the prevalence of the low-income and homeless in need of medical care.
We would like to invite you to join us in our efforts through your generous contribution!
It is the mission of the SLO Noor Foundation to provide the under-served and disadvantaged of SLO County with the free access to quality acute, non-emergent, care they deserve regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, immigration or socioeconomic status. Accordingly, we are committed to bettering our community by:
- Providing quality preventative and episodic primary health care to the uninsured
- Providing students early exposure to addressing health care disparities through the mutually beneficial cooperative efforts of patients, healthcare professionals and members of the community
- Offering discount prescription information for prescriptions to be filled at local pharmacies
- Making available support group literature as well as case management and social workers to assist individuals in identifying and qualifying for programs (including insurance) and other resources available in the community.[/list]
The general consensus among physicians, nurses and clinicians who will be volunteering their time at the foundation’s clinic is that the time to offer these free services is now! Thank you in advance for any contribution to this cause and, subsequently, our unified community.
