About The BFC

We Are

SUNY DOWNSTATE STUDENTS

We are a student-run free clinic. A fully-board-certified physician supervises our work and helps us with clinical decision-making.

COMMITTED TO SOCIAL JUSTICE

We are committed to addressing health disparities in Brooklyn through service. We envision a world in which every patient has the resources they need to be healthy.

PASSIONATE ABOUT EDUCATION

Through our work we strive to learn both clinical healthcare and about how to become more socially conscious providers.
