We are pleased to introduce you to Tennessee Valley Pediatrics, a 2017 Platinum level Corporate Sponsor!
Practicing since 1986, Tennessee Valley Pediatrics serves families in the northwest Alabama area. Karmen Somers and her husband Dr. Wayne Melvin are the owners and lead the clinic in their involvement with Disciples’ Village. With both a pediatric clinic and an adolescent clinic on campus, they staff 3 physicians, 5 nurse practitioners, a lactation consultant and numerous nurses and office staff.
We recently asked Karmen about their experiences as a Corporate Sponsor with Disciples’ Village:
How as your partnership with DV impacted your business?
As a part of our partnership, Tennessee Valley Pediatrics led a mission trip to Haiti last march. In order to buy mediations for the trip, we sold t-shirts with a Bible verse and our logo on them along with healthy snacks in our lobby. We were so blessed, and honestly amazed by the support we received. Hundreds of patients bought shirts and snacks and prayed for us. People gave money at the check-out window. We raised enough to pay for almost all of our medications. It was incredible to see so many people in our community praying for us and the people in Haiti. And it is exciting to see people in town wearing shirts that advertise for our business and for Jesus. This partnership has become a way for us to be a light in our community as well as in Haiti.
What has your personal experience partnering with Disciples’ Village been like?
We have been so blessed by this partnership. We have seen firsthand what Disciples’ Village is doing in the villages of Haiti. We have worshiped in the churches DV has built with the pastors DV has trained. We have seen lives saved in the medical clinics that DV runs. We have seen the schools that DV sponsors where children are so grateful to have the opportunity to learn. We have seen lives changed through healthcare and education and most of all Jesus. Our corporate sponsorship, and that of other Christian business owners, makes all of that possible.
Thank you Tennessee Valley Pediatrics for making a difference in the lives of children in the States and in Haiti!
