Volunteers in Action: Doctor dedicates years to free clinic


For people who are poor and without health insurance, accessing medical care can be next to impossible. That's why the Salvation Army's free medical clinic in Rochester is so important…Relieving physical and mental suffering is the goal of Dr. Thomas McLeod, the volunteer medical director of the Salvation Army's Good Samaritan Medical Clinic. He's been involved in the clinic since it was started about 15 years ago. As a physician in Primary Care Internal Medicine at Mayo Clinic for 20 years, McLeod, a North Dakota transplant, is kept busy with his paying job.
