TAPM still operates three Guilford Child Health locations, one

in Greensboro and two in High Point, as well as one adult

practice in High Point. There are several other clinics in the

community that may be able to provide care for free or on a

sliding payment scale.

Merle Green, the Guilford County public health director noted

the Evans-Blount Community Health Center on Martin Luther King

Jr. Drive has already seen an increase in patients. “The

Evans-Blount Community Health Center is happy to assist TAPM

and HealthServe. Many of their patients will qualify to

enroll at the health center and it does have the capacity to

enroll additional patients.”

Although the S. Eugene HealthServe stopped seeing patients on

August 9, TAPM has committed to filling patients’

prescriptions for up to 90 days and the clinic will be open

until August 30.

“This is not just a one agency or just a government issue,”

said Ellerby. “It’s a community issue. We have to decide how

are we going to come together and make sure each citizen has

the best options for a private healthcare provider.”
