The University of Nevada School of Medicine announces its free Student Outreach Clinics for July, with the intent of assisting northern Nevada’s medically uninsured with needed health care services.
General clinics, available to both children and adults, will be held on July 9 and July 30 from 8 a.m. to noon both days.
The free clinics offer a variety of services including access to head start physicals, sports physicals, well checks, sick visits and immunizations for children, as well as pap smears, pregnancy testing, gynecological exams, breast exams, STD testing and mammogram referrals for women. In addition, the clinics also provide x-rays, immunizations and lab services, like cholesterol checks and blood glucose monitoring, for all patients.
Clinics are held at the School of Medicine’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.
As evidenced by the recent change to include Reno its name, the School of Medicine is a proud member of the northern Nevada community. Under the direct supervision of licensed faculty and community physicians, medical students from the School of Medicine offer monthly, free Student Outreach Clinics as way to give back to the community that has shaped them into the future leaders of medicine. No appointment is necessary for clinic patients who are seen on a first come, first served basis. Spanish translators are available as needed.
