In 2012, Emory medical students founded the Harriet Tubman Women’s Clinic to provide reproductive healthcare to underserved and homeless women in metropolitan Atlanta. Our team is made up entirely of volunteer physicians, nurse practitioners, medical, nursing and undergraduate students from the greater Atlanta community and Emory University School of Medicine. In 2017, HTWC underwent a pivotal move from Open Door residential community near downtown Atlanta to the Clarkston Community Health Center (CCHC) in Clarkston, Georgia. Since then, HTWC has grown immensely and is proud to provide over 500 visits annually. We are committed to providing high-quality, culturally sensitive care to each patient who walks through our door.

We have been housed under the CCHC since 2017. Visit their site below to learn more about the wide variety of services offered.
“Being part of a volunteer teaching clinic was an information pipeline that showed me what it’s like to be a passionate member of this field. I heard medical students confidently recite patient histories, and I wanted to feel that achievement myself. I saw physicians get a smile from empowered patients, and I thought of how it might feel to earn such a meaningful gesture myself.”— Dylan Boye, Former Head Medical Assistant at HTWC, Biology B.S. WGS Minor, Emory University ’20
“As a sociology minor, I have learned how socioeconomic status and discrepancies in our healthcare system can affect a patient’s ability to access care. Being part of a team of volunteer physicians and medical students who truly believe in the mission of providing services to underprivileged women is an honor. The team at HTWC is constantly looking for new ways to maximize both the quality and quantity of care provided. I am motivated by the ability of the clinic to put their patients, many who are non-English speakers and require interpreters, at ease throughout procedures and appointments. I believe every individual has a responsibility to manifest their talents and skills to help their community in some way, and volunteering at HTWC has encouraged me to pursue medicine so that I can continue to do so as a future physician.”— Roxana Hojjatie, Volunteer Medical Assistant at HTWC, Biochemistry, Georgia Tech ’20
We are a teaching clinic overseen by volunteer providers from Emory University School of Medicine and around Atlanta.
