Seven years ago, I left a lucrative position at a major pharmaceutical company to step out on faith and pursue my passion of helping people achieve a more optimal state of health.
Fountain Medical Associates (http://www.fountainmedonline.com/
opened in 2010 and as the name suggests, we guide people to a fountain of youth that is only realized with a healthy lifestyle that includes nutritious foods, regular physical activity, and the avoidance of toxic chemicals and toxic stress. We’ve been successful helping our patients gain control of chronic medical conditions or take early action to avoid these conditions. The extra time we take to make sure our patients have the tools they need to live a healthy life is just part of the reason our patients trust us with their care.Our expansion project will increase our capacity to care for our patients with more exam room space as well as space for classes and conferences to share valuable health related information. We also plan to design a garden in the small outdoor space to serve as a place of quiet reflection and to promote urban gardening. As a social business, it is important for us to stay financially healthy in order to continue the service we provide. Unfortunately, delays and additional renovation costs threaten the sustainability of Fountain Medical Associates.
That is why I am asking the community for help. With your contribution, you will help ensure that a trusted resource in the medical community remains independent. This is ever more important as personal liberties are threatened and health insurance companies dictate how medicine is practiced. With the additional money that is raised, we can complete the renovations in the office space and also in the rental apartment units, which will provide another stream of revenue to support the costs associated with this bigger & better office space.
We’ve come a long way since our humble beginnings, but we still have a way to go in our quest to build the outpatient “hospital” of the future.
Thanks in advance for your contribution to this important cause.Safiyya S. Shabazz, M.D.
