The Rotary Club of Alamo was pleased to present a Paul Harris Fellowship to Dr. Jane Hewitt, the Medical Director at the RotaCare Pittsburg Free Medical Clinic. We were pleased to recognize her as a Paul Harris Fellow in special appreciation for the ways in which her life exemplifies the humanitarian and educational objectives of the Rotary Foundation.

The Paul Harris Fellowship is named for Paul Harris, who founded Rotary with three business associates in Chicago in 1905. The Fellowship was established in 1957 in his honor to express appreciation for a contribution of a $1,000 to the humanitarian and education programs of the Rotary Foundation. Those programs include an array of projects that save and invigorate the lives of people around the world and enhance international friendship and understanding. Foundation programs provide educational opportunities, food, potable water, healthcare, immunizations and shelter for millions of people. Those activities are funded, implemented and managed by Rotarians and Rotary Clubs around the globe. Rotarians can designate a Paul Harris Fellow to recognize another person whose life demonstrates a shared purpose with the objectives and mission of the Rotary foundation to build world understanding and peace.

At the meeting, Dr. Hewitt received a Paul Harris Fellow certificate and a Paul Harris pin. The certificate states that she has been named a Paul Harris Fellow, “in appreciation of tangible and significant assistance given in the furtherance of better understanding and friendly relations between peoples of the world.”

Dr. Hewitt has been a regular volunteer at RotaCare Pittsburg Free Medical Clinic since 2012 and became the Medical Director in 2021. She is board-certified in Internal Medicine. After graduating from Stanford University, she received her Medical Degree from the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and then completed her Internal Medicine Residency at UC San Diego. She joined The Permanent Medical Group in 1981 practicing at Kaiser Permanente Vallejo Medical Center and Fairfield Medical Offices. She was Chief of the Department of Adult Medicine in Fairfield for the last 13 of her 30-year career at Kaiser. She enjoys volunteering at RotaCare, helping patients, and working with other wonderful volunteers and staff.

She has been a real dedicated medical provider serving the uninsured at the RotaCare Pittsburg Free Medical Clinic. She has spearheaded the implementation of the electronic health records, AthenaHealth, and also of the use of Telehealth at the Clinic and has been a supporter of the Transitional Care Clinic, for which the Rotary Club of Alamo received a $167,050 Global Grant to help Diabetic, Hypertensive and Asthmatic patients.
