Shriners Hospitals for Children – Greenville board members and Shriners Dr. Michael Ponder (far right) and Kenny Carter (second from right) recently accepted a donation from the Unicoi County Shrine Club to support the newly-opened Shriners Hospitals for Children Orthopedics Clinic at Niswonger Children’s Hospital in Johnson City. The donation was the very first earmarked for the outreach clinic, which makes expert orthopedic care more accessible to children in the region. Dr. Brandon Green, who also accepted the check, lives in Johnson City so that the new clinic is open to treat patients on a daily basis.
