Family Tree

Is there a giving gene? What is it that inspires selfless acts of kindness, and can those be nourished from generation to generation? Meet Dana Burnstein, Lori Taylor and Jordyn Taylor, three generations who share the enterprise of the Dr. Gary Burnstein Community Health Clinic.

Dr. Burnstein was a cardiologist who had a kind heart and a big of dream. In 1997, he started a free clinic in a homeless shelter in Pontiac, Michigan. There, in a space no larger than a closet, he provided care to hundreds of needy and uninsured patients for nearly five years. In 2003, Dr. Burnstein passed away, leaving the legacy of the clinic to his wife, Dana, his son, Ian, and daughter, Lori, along with friends, volunteers, supporters and generous donors. This is their story . . . a story of family, community, caring and giving.
