Music for a Good Cause
On February 25th, local Brooklyn band Shaman Elect debuted original compositions in affiliation with the Brooklyn Free Clinic. We at the akBFC want to give an enormous thank you to Shaman Elect. Support from members of our community has always been essential to the BFC’s efforts to address health disparities in Brooklyn. With their help, in the past year, we reached several milestones. We had:
712 total patient visits
221 patient referrals for free follow-up care
208 patients tested for HIV
95 patients tested for Hepatitis C
Working with our community will continue to help us face the challenges of providing healthcare in the upcoming years.
Thanks to everyone who came out, and check out our Instagram for pictures from the concert! If you’re interested in the band (they’re pretty good, though we may be a bit biased), you can check out their website here. They also produced a video of one of their compositions for the event that you can watch below:
