Crary joins the Board of Directors of The Friends of Volunteers in Medicine Clinic, which oversees the financial operations of the Volunteers in Medicine Clinic.

Crary is Managing Attorney at Crary, Buchanan, Bowdish, Bovie, Beres, Elder & Williamson, one of the oldest law firms on the Treasure Coast. The firm was started in 1927 by former State Senator Evans Crary, Sr.

“To get someone of Mike’s caliber on the board is just fantastic,” said Ivins Steinhauer, FVIM Board President. “We’re extremely fortunate. Mike’s expertise and deep roots in the community will be invaluable in helping us expand our base of support.”

Born and raised in Stuart, Crary is an avid outdoorsman and fitness enthusiast who enjoys the benefits of exercise in remaining healthy. He decided to get involved with VIM Clinic because he’s seen the challenges faced by less-fortunate residents of the county who struggle with health care needs.

“It’s very important in a community to make sure that everybody has access to affordable, quality health care,” Crary said. “I think that the Volunteers in Medicine Clinic fills a very vital need.”

One of his priorities while on the FVIM Board of Directors is to raise awareness “so that community leaders have a deeper understanding of the mission of the clinic, and the vital role and need that it fills in the community.”

Since VIM Clinic first opened on Oct. 2, 1995, there have been more than 111,000 patient visits. The clinic now averages more than 1,100 visits a month, up 45 percent over the past two years, said Executive Director Mary Fields.

From Crary’s perspective, every one of the more than 90 VIM Clinic volunteers is an “unsung hero, trying to do the right thing for humanity.”

“They’re fabulous because they don’t want accolades, they don’t want rewards, they don’t want a lot of recognition — they just want to help people,” he said. “That’s really what makes the world go round, people helping people. And that’s what the clinic does — superlatively.”
