The Society of Student Run Free Clinics (SSRFC) is an initiative started by students though a progressions of conferences focused on harnessing the passion of student run clinics across the nation. This started with the Soceity of Teachers of Family Medicine (STFM) pre-conference in Portland, Oregon in 2008 and later a follow up conference in Washington D.C. through the National Summit of Clinicians for Healthcare Justice at George Washington University in 2009. That same year, a group of students from the University of Nebraska led a meeting for student run free clinics titled “Sharing the Vision.” In addition, STFM continued their student-run free clinic pre-conference series at their 2009 meeting in Savannah, Georgia. These meetings brought together a highly motivated group of students with a plan to create a national group that would allow for collaboration between clincs, idea sharing, and support for one another. This vision was realized with the creation of the SSRFC and our inaugrual meeting in Jacksonville, Florida in 2010.
