Barefoot Doctor

Jenny Corbin received a loan of $5,000 from Entrepreneur Works in 2009 to start up Barefoot Doctor Community Acupuncture Clinic, a microenterprise that makes alternative healthcare affordable to residents of a low-to moderate-income neighborhood that could not have otherwise accessed her services.

Jenny has since hired another acupuncturist to assist with increased demand. The model of community acupuncture allows her to care for 5-6 people at once, which cuts down on overhead costs making the service less expensive to the patient and the experience relaxed and friendly.

Jenny Corbin supports the community not only by offering affordable health treatment in the North Philadelphia neighborhood of Fishtown, but also by participating in neighborhood events and displaying works by local artists in her clinic.
