Undergraduate Education: Graduated from the University of Kansas with a degree in chemical engineering

Favorite Part of JayDoc: I love being part of a team of medical students who share a passion for helping people and work diligently to provide high-quality medical care for the uninsured and underserved in the Wichita area. JayDoc Community Clinic has not only helped me grow personally and professionally, but also allowed me to serve members of my Hispanic community.


Bliss BairdBliss Baird
Director of Student Education
Undergraduate Education: Graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a degree in biochemistry

Favorite Part of JayDoc: Caring for people! Our studies (especially in preclinical years) can seem far removed from the goal of serving others, so interacting with JayDoc patients reaffirms that we study hard because we want to serve well. The environment created by caring volunteers fosters a patient-centered approach with a heightened awareness of barriers to care. The same team also cares for each other. When I tried to emulate the senior students who had invested in me, I discovered a true passion for teaching!

compassionate individuals to change others’ lives for the better.
