Lantern Medical Clinic is a Christian-based medical clinic whose purpose is to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ and provide medical care to the low income, "working uninsured" of the Jackson metropolitan area. Lantern is an after-hours medical clinic run by physician volunteers, initially seeing patients Monday through Thursday evening from 6:00 - 9:00 p.m. Lantern hopes to have enough volunteers to provide primary care services for two evenings a week and dental and medial specialty services the other two evenings. Latner will be available to patients by appointment, with a few work-in spots each evening.

 

Please consider volunteering to work with us in htis important ministry. We want to make it as convenient as possible for volunteers, and to that end we are asking volunteers to work no more than once every 6 to 8 weeks. Likewise, Lanter in located in a safe and well-lit area in Pearl (on Highway 80 just east of Kroger).

 

Lantern is a Mississippi nonprofit corporation and is tax exempt under Section 501 (c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Based on advice received from MACM and our legal counsel, the physicians and nurse practitioners will provide services at Lantern under the "Good Samaritan" statue (Miss. Code Ann. 73-25-38), which provides immunity from certain liability. In addition, MACM has recommended that physicians whose malpractice insurance is with MACM should notify MACM of their service at Lantern, and MACM will provide coverage for these services at no extra cost.

 

If you are interested in volunteering please let Lantern's administrator, Steve Morris, know via email at smorris@lanternclinic.org. If you have any questions, we will be glad to speak with you.
