Steidl is the primary care provider at the HMS Cliff-Gila Community Health Center.  HMS and Steidl have been buyers together at the livestock sale for more than 10 years. "We do this both to support Cliff-Gila individuals and families in need and to support community youth members that participate in the County FFA and 4-H programs. It's a way of giving back to the community that supports HMS and the HMS Cliff-Gila Community Health Center," said Steidl.
