M. Todd Crump, MD, has been selected as the Individual Award Winner for Central Carolina Community Foundation’s Best of Philanthropy Awards for his dedication to and leadership at The Free Medical Clinic, where he serves as the volunteer Medical Director and physician.
Dr. Crump began volunteering at the Clinic in 1997, while in medical school at the University of South Carolina School of Medicine, and accepted the Medical Director role in 2002. He is also the driving force behind The Doctors Lounge, the Clinic’s annual signature fundraiser which features physicians who are also musicians. Dr. Crump is employed as an ER physician with Lexington Medical Center.
Freddie Strange, Executive Director of The Free Medical Clinic, notes “Dr. Crump’s dedication to The Free Medical Clinic and our patients is unsurpassed. He is in the building daily to assist with operations, quality management, volunteer medical provider recruitment, or providing pre-surgical assessments for our patients. He makes himself available on weekends and after hours as needed without ever getting frustrated. As far as the Clinic goes, Dr. Crump is always on call. He also assists the Clinic with fundraising and public awareness and is our greatest advocate. Needless to say, Dr. Crump is loved by the staff, patients, volunteers, and the Board of the Free Medical Clinic and, I dare say, that The Free Medical Clinic, Inc. would not exist without Dr. Crump.”
