In 1970, Eula Hall, the President of the Eastern KY Welfare Rights Organization, invited the SHC to bring a Health Fair to Mud Creek, Ky., which we did in the summer of 1971. That success helped Eula open the “Mud Creek Clinic” in 1973. After an arson attack, rebuilding and expanding a few times, merging with Big Sandy Health Services, and being renamed the “Eula Hall Health Center” in 2011, that clinic is still operating today.
Eula remained active as a patient advocate at the center until her death at the age of 93 in May 2021.
2021 Grant Recipient. The SHC Legacy Fund is proud to be able to return to Mud Creek with financial support for community health workers and outreach to the thousands of low-income residents from miles around who still use that clinic as their primary site for health services.
