For nearly three decades Family Health Care (FHC) has led the way towards caring for people with HIV. When HIV was initially hitting the area, Dr. Lee was one of the only two doctors in Kansas City who provided care to uninsured AIDS patients. FHC has provided cutting edge HIV services in the 1980's through today. Two years ago, FHC was the first in the area to offer Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) for people who want protection from the possible transmission of HIV. (For example, negative partners of positive people.)


The AIDS epidemic has slackened for some populations, and in some parts of the world. But it is still a leading cause of death and it is still disrupting families, communities and countries. We urge anyone who supports caring and treating people with HIV to consider giving of their time or resources locally to Family Health Care or more globally to UNAIDS. At FHC donations are used to provide free HIV testing, medications and PrEP for uninsured individuals. At UNAIDS $75 dollars can treat a person with HIV for a year (medications are provided at specially reduced rates for under-developed countries.)

 ‘Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in health care is the most shocking and inhumane.’- Reverend Martin Luther King.


“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion … People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love … For love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite,”  Nelson Mandela

The "Q" on Quindaro- Re-Opening the clinic to serve in the NE of KCKS


Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.- Robert Kennedy

Real stories from patient care files.


John McKain - a hero in war, a hero in his life, a true hero in the senate.

The senate adjourned at almost 2 AM 7/28/2017 after voting down the terrible health care bill with the Democrats and three Republicans- Susan Collins (Maine), Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) and a heroic and pivital vote "nay" from John McCain (Arizona). Thank you to these senators and Missouri senator Claire McCaskill who listened to their constituents and did not bow to special interests and partisanship. Sorry our Republican Kansas senators Jerry Moran, Pat Roberts and Missourian Roy Blunt lacked the courage and consideration to work for a health care system that will help more Americans and hurt fewer. We need to fix, not end the work of the ACA.  SLeeMD
