7/14/2010 - By: Anne McMillin

The University of Nevada School of Medicine's Student Outreach Clinic for this month will be held on July 24 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. This will be a general clinic at which adults and children will be seen.

Student Outreach Clinics are a free service providing much needed care for Washoe County's medically uninsured population. Clinics offer physicals for work or school, EKGs, blood pressure monitoring, referrals and selected lab services at discounted fees.

Small fees averaging between $5 and $20 may apply to certain diagnostic services and patients are recommended to call ahead to learn more about blood services.

Under the direct supervision of licensed faculty physicians, medical students from the University of Nevada School of Medicine offer monthly Student Outreach Clinics which provide free care. No appointment is necessary for clinic patients who are seen on a first come, first served basis. Early arrival is recommended. Spanish translators are available as needed.

Clinics are held at University Health System's Family Medicine Center, located on the University of Nevada, Reno campus just north of Mackay Stadium off of North Virginia Street. Take RTC bus route 7 to North Virginia Street or the free Sierra Spirit bus.

Patients seeking further information about the Student Outreach Clinic may call (775) 682-8646.
