MADISON, Wis. (AP) — People from across Wisconsin and beyond will get a chance to see a health care provider and obtain prescription drugs for free at a one-day clinic in Madison this weekend.
The National Association of Free and Charitable Clinics plans to hold a clinic in the city on Saturday. The organization's executive director, Nicole Lamoureux, says about 210 providers ranging from doctors to nurses to lab technicians have volunteered their services for the day.
Anyone who wants to visit will get a free exam as well as a free 90-day prescription for any drugs they may need.
Wisconsin has a relatively low number of residents who lack health insurance, but Lamoureux says the clinic is designed to help the underinsured as well as those who have no coverage at all.
