A Prescription for Health and Hope

In 1997, Theresa Pavlov observed a troubling trend: many people along the Mississippi Gulf Coast were forced to choose between paying for food and purchasing their medications. Recognizing that a choice between food and medicine was no choice at all, Pavlov and members of the St. Vincent de Paul Society founded a free pharmacy to help all those in need. The pharmacy, the only one of its kind in South Mississippi, distributes more than $1.5 million worth of medication each year. As its unpaid executive director for 11 years and serving as a volunteer now, Pavlov’s faith and vision has brought comfort, security and hope to those who feared finances would trump their health.
