READ BIO

For the past six years I have been privileged to serve on the Board of Directors of the Rutland County Free Clinic. I have had the additional honor of being one of the medical providers for the many patients coming through our front door. After being in the practice of general surgery for forty years, it has been very fulfilling for me to work with the many wonderful individuals in the Clinic and on the Board. Most of all I very much enjoy interacting with the many grateful patients who seek out our services in their moment of need. I am also grateful for the many talented providers who volunteer along with me at the Clinic, and also appreciate the willingness of the many talented physicians and dentists in our community who see our patients upon referral.

My name is Kathleen Boyd and I have had the pleasure of being a member of the Rutland County Free Clinic Board since June of 2018.  I was thrilled when I was asked to join the Board, because it was an excellent opportunity to expand my role as a professional nurse in Rutland County.  My life’s passion has been to provide compassionate nursing care to those who are in need. Volunteering at the Rutland County Free Clinic allows me the opportunity to ensure I meet my professional and personal goals which are to address the population health needs of my Community.
