Beginning Oct. 7, the clinic, located at Transition Projects’ Clark Center Annex, will offer direct health screening, health and social services and health education clinics to all individuals regardless of insurance status. The goal of the clinic is to help meet the growing health needs of underserved populations while also enhancing students’ professional education.
