Barbara Ridley, Nurse Practitioner at the Alta Bates Summit (Herrick) Disabled Community Health Clinic (DCHC) is retiring in October after over 30 years of service to the disabled community. The DCHC was initially established in a collaborative project with the Center for Independent Living in 1973, but Barbara revived it and greatly expanded it starting in the 1990’s, and added the Spasticity Management Program. The DCHC will be continuing in the capable hands of Nurse Practitioner Rebecca Hummel-Moore and Medical Director Hussam El-Gohary MD. Come and help us celebrate Barbara’s retirement with a benefit party for BORP on Sunday October 11, 5:00 to 8:00 pm at the Ed Roberts Campus. Food, music, great company. Barbara requests no personal gifts, but please donations to BORP (tax-deductible) $10 to $500 sliding scale. No one turned away for lack of funds.
