The Saturday Clinic for the Uninsured, a joint venture of the Medical College of Wisconsin and Columbia St. Mary’s
, will expand its services to include pediatric patients not covered by health insurance.
The Saturday Clinic for the Uninsured was founded by medical students from the Medical College in 1991, and provides free primary medical care to about 1,000 uninsured patients every year. The clinic is located at the Columbia St. Mary’s Family Health Center, 1121 E. North Ave., Milwaukee.
Volunteer physicians and medical students staff the clinic. Volunteer pediatricians will see up to nine patients on the second and fourth Saturday of every month beginning April 28.
“Our families have been asking us to provide pediatric services, and we’re glad to be able now to offer that,” said Jennifer Gomulka, a second-year medical student at the Medical College of Wisconsin, and one of the board members of the free clinic. “It is our hope we can expand the number of appointments available; we are recruiting any pediatricians who would like to volunteer their time and expertise to make that happen.”
