The Medical Service Bureau, which links low-income Sedgwick County residents with prescription medications with prescription medication and vision care assistance, has a new executive director.

Aaron Walker joined the bureau June 1, replacing Jean Hogan. Walker’s experience includes many years with Youthville and most recently as vice president of strategic development at United Methodist Healthy Ministry Fund in Hutchinson.

The nonprofit bureau, established in 1937 by a group of MSSC physicians, served 3,798 eligible clients last year. It provides vouchers for medications and diabetic supplies, as well as arranging for eye exams and eyeglasses. The bureau, 1530 S. Oliver, Suite 130, takes walk-in patients and referrals from physicians. Medical practices can obtain forms by calling 683-7559. Learn more at www.msbmedlinks.org.
