I am a native West Texan blessed by an amazing wife and 4 daughters, who happens to practice medicine in my spare time when I am not herding cats.
I volunteer at Heal the City because this is a dream God has given me to pursue and make a difference in my hometown
I have been a real estate appraiser and Amarillo resident for 36 years. We are all called to a life of service in the Lord, and HTC represents the most critical service to the most in need in our community.
Dr. Shari Medford
For 17 years I have been in private pediatric practice at Amarillo Children's Clinic. I have been blessed to serve impoverished children in third world countries on short mission trips over the past 10 years. This was a very rewarding experience for me. I was very excited to when given the opportunity to serve children in our local area that have limited access to medical care. I passionate about the children, and I feel Heal the City meets a need that was previously not filled in the community.
I am a longtime community volunteer with a passion for helping others, especially in health care. Heal The City for me is a "Humanitarian" mission, which is why I volunteer.
I serve as Chief Executive Officer of Amarillo Urology Associates and AUA Surgical Center. In addition to a BS in Accounting and an MBA in Healthcare Management, I am a certified Lean Six Sigma Black Belt and Master Black Belt.
I have been fortunate enough to be a sounding board for many years to Dr. Keister and his idea for a free medical clinic to help the underserved in Amarillo. I am honored to serve on the Heal The City board and it is truly amazing to see God’s hand at work through Heal the City.
I am long time Amarillo resident and owner of a truck dealership group that has operated in the Amarillo market for over 40 years. I am blessed to be on the Heal the City board to see firsthand the tremendous amount of "healing" our organization has done and will be doing for the citizens of our community.
Dr. Rodney Young
I’m Rodney Young, and I’m a family physician and Chair of the Department of Family and Community Medicine at the Texas Tech School of Medicine in Amarillo. I serve on the board of directors and as a volunteer physician with Heal the City because I know that what we do changes lives and offers hope to so many, where there was little hope before. “…Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”
I am Lead Pastor at Generation Next Worship Center. My heart is for the San Jacinto Area and when the opportunity to partner with Doctor Keister to launch a clinic in our area arose I was excited to see the impact it would have on our community as well as our city. I love the work that is done through Heal The City every week and truly believe the impact through the personal connection that is made every week will transform the health and welfare of our city.
I am a registered pharmacist that has worked at Eli Lilly 25 years in various roles including sales, management, and HR. I am involved at HTC because every person deserves to be treated with dignity and respect. The health of our city is critical to the future of our city.
Dr. Jan Swan
My name is Jan Swan, and I am an anesthesiologist. I volunteer at HTC because it allows me to share the wealth of my education. I have time to sit and listen, look and see, share a problem and give compassion. It allows the spread of health and spiritual knowledge unhitched from the rabid business of my usual medical life. I have joy when working beside my beloved peers. I also learn and gain new information weekly about medicine, the profession to which I am dedicated and indebted.
