She had been a long-time volunteer at the former Jeanie Schmidt Free Clinic (now Healthworks of Northern Virginia) providing free health care to the uninsured poor in the Northern Virginia area and was instrumental in starting its adult clinic. She also managed Project Access of Northern Virginia, a nonprofit organization that helps provide specialty health care to the lower income, uninsured.

Lastly, as a clinical assistant professor at the University of Virginia and Virginia Commonwealth University medical schools, Dr. Eapen actively participates in medical education and feels that it is an important service and obligation for the betterment of the profession of medicine. She is very grateful to all of our patients who have over the years assisted us in this effort. It is only through our patients’ willingness and enthusiasm to participate in the mentoring and education of medical and other students that we have been identified as a “Center for Excellence” in teaching and led to Dr. Eapen receiving multiple teaching rewards over the years.
