Dr. Henry Wayne Poore, first a physician, but also a cattleman, author, master story teller, musician, and founder of the Poore Free Medical Clinic, departed this life on November 11, 2015 at his home in Flagstaff, Arizona. Nina Poore, his beloved wife and partner in all of his undertakings for 60 years, and his sons and daughters were by his side. 

Doc Poore's dream has been to provide medical services for poor people in Flagstaff, Arizona, the town where he and Nina Poore, a Registered Nurse Midwife, raised their seven children and operated their medical practice. In October of 2011, Poore Free Medical Clinic opened its doors. Anyone who has no insurance and no way to pay for medical services is welcomed. Since that beginning, the clinic has grown and thrived. A second location in Flagstaff opened in 2014 and it too is thriving.
