Arlington Free Clinic gears up to mark 30 years of service

New CEO, incoming board members help to ring in 2024

The Arlington Free Clinic opened 2024 by welcoming its new president/CEO and incoming board of directors.

Lesley Daigle has been tapped to succeed Nancy White as president/CEO of the social-safety net organization. A nurse and lawyer, she has spent the past decade at VHC Health (Virginia Hospital Center), where she managed compliance, focusing on the health and safety of patient care.

“She is a warm and charismatic leader with an outstanding reputation and a clear passion for the Free Clinic’s mission,” officials said.

“2024 marks not only Lesley’s arrival but also the Free Clinic’s 30th anniversary, a double cause for celebration as we embark on a new decade of service,” said the organization’s board chair, Jen Sosin.

“As we commemorate AFC’s milestone anniversary and enter a new era, Lesley’s vision and expertise promise exciting prospects for our community,” Sosin said.

Serving with Sosin on the Free Clinic’s executive committee for 2024 are Jennifer Brearey (vice chair); Mary Margaret Lewis, MD (secretary); John Couric (treasurer); Ana Alvarez (governance committee chair); and Pepper Binner (development committee chair).
