The N.E.W. Community Clinic’s mission is to provide access to quality, comprehensive, and compassionate health care for low-income and uninsured people and families in the Green Bay area. The clinic, which now includes multiple clinic sites, celebrated its 50th anniversary in July 2021.
Dr. Yolo Diaz is a bilingual pediatrician employed by Advocate Aurora Health who cares for patients at N.E.W. Community Clinic. Dr. Diaz was born and raised in Mexico City and migrated to the United States with her husband after completing her medical training, making Green Bay, Wisconsin her permanent home. She has been caring for patients at N.E.W Community Clinic since 2001 and is a trusted member of the Green Bay community, especially among Hispanic community members.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Diaz’s relationship with Hispanic community members has been crucial to educating them about COVID-19, testing and vaccinations. N.E.W. Clinic started offering COVID-19 vaccinations to patients in January 2021 to bring the vaccine to underserved groups in the area. Dr. Diaz publicly urged the Hispanic community to get the vaccination and reach out to her directly at N.E.W. Community Clinic with questions.
During 2020, Dr. Diaz served 100 new patients and accommodated 581 total patient visits at N.E.W. Community Clinic.
