The Conway Interfaith Clinic (CIC) is hosting their 6th annual Dr. Jack Logan Memorial Golf Tournament April 12 on Tannenbaum Golf Course at Greers Ferry Lake with a 9 a.m. shotgun start. This golf tournament, which is in memory of Dr. Jack Logan, raises money and awareness for the clinic. Dr. Logan, a well known Conway Dentist, was instrumental in the formation of the clinic. He died in 2006 while in Nicaragua on a mission trip.
The Conway Interfaith Clinic’s mission is to provide access to medical and dental services for those individuals and families in Faulkner and surrounding counties who do not otherwise have access. Since opening in October of 2003, they have treated over 25,000 patients and filled 15,726 prescriptions at a retail value of $14,185,000.
Kittie Aaron, Executive Director of Conway Interfaith Clinic, states, "Knowing that the clinic has had a positive effect on over 25,000 families is very rewarding. We continue to strive to help those that cannot afford to receive treatment elsewhere. I am so proud of what CIC does."
When the clinic was just in the planning stages, it was reported that 12 percent of Faulkner County’s residents were uninsured. Now that percentage is 24 percent. As healthcare costs skyrocket and challenging economic times are upon us, the costs to support the clinic’s missions are great. The Dr. Jack Logan golf tournament is just one way to help raise funds for those rising healthcare costs.
The tournament will include mulligans, skins, a raffle drawing and door prizes. Breakfast and lunch will be provided to all players. The tournament will consist of 4-person scrambles with only 36 slots available.

Aaron states, "The golf tournament honors the memory of Dr. Jack Logan. He was a great asset to the dental community. Continuing his legacy by holding the golf tournament each year is a reminder of what great people can achieve, and is a platform others can follow."
