I'm On The Right Track.


Due to a struggling economy, uncontrolled diabetes, cholesterol and hypertension, Rudy Smith found himself off-course in the marathon of life. Through the programs offered at the Tar River Mission Clinic, which provides free healthcare services to the low income and uninsured, Rudy was given medical treatment and guidance. Due to United Way support for these programs, Rudy was able to overcome these obstacles. Now he is winning the race for better health.
