Volunteers in Medicine


A Jacksonville free health clinic is struggling to make ends meet after not receiving expected state funding.

Gov. Rick Scott used his line-item veto power to cut nearly $500 million from the state budget. And $9.5 million of that was earmarked to be distributed among Florida's free clinics, through the Florida Association of Free and Charitable Clinics.

The number of uninsured Americans has fallen, but millions of working people around the country still do not have health coverage. 



A familiar face in Jacksonville politics is hoping to join the City Council.

Former State Representative Mike Weinstein has filed to run for the At-Large Group three seat now held by the term-limited Stephen Joost.

A two-time mayoral candidate, Weinstein says he’s running for Council so he can serve the city while continuing in his position as CEO of Volunteers in Medicine.

Weinstein was Chief Financial Officer under former Jacksonville Mayors Ed Austin and John Delaney.
