“The volunteer docs of the Kansas City Medical Society enable our community to maximize human potential. When people are healthy, they work, take care of their families, support their neighbors, and build the kind of Kansas City we all want to live in. Yes, our work is about fundamental human dignity; it’s also about community and economic development.”
