Eula Hall

A self-described “Hillbilly Activist”, Eula Hall (Pike County, Ky., 29 October 1927 –  Craynor, Ky., 8 May 2021) was a former Appalachian Volunteer and the leader of the “Eastern Kentucky Welfare Rights Organization” which invited the Student Health Coalition to bring a health fair to Mud Creek, Ky. in the summer of 1971. This was one of her many community organizing steps which lead to the founding of the community controlled Mud Creek Clinic in 1974, still serving hundreds, even thousands, of community members nearly fifty years after SHC’s one-time Health Fair at Mud Creek.
