The Free Clinic to Host Women’s Health Day


Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) School of Medicine students will host a Women’s Health Day free clinic from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. April 11 at The Free Clinic at Lubbock Impact, 2707 34th St.

The facility is a non-billing clinic where people without medical insurance can be seen for various medical problems. Patients of all ages from mostly lower-income backgrounds are seen on a first-come, first-served basis.

Women’s Health Day is a promotional event in which The Free Clinic will provide medical services such as well-woman exams and consultations with Texas Tech Physicians by appointment. Services offered include breast exams, pelvic exams, pap smears, mammogram sign-ups and referrals, pregnancy tests, prenatal referrals and Tdap, Gardasil and flu vaccinations. Personal resource counseling and Children’s Health Insurance Program application assistance also will be available. Stacey Lynch, a second-year medical student, said the key to keeping women healthy is prevention.

“At the TTUHSC Free Clinic we see a lot of women in need of pap smears and other women’s health exams,” Lynch said. “Regular health exams and tests can help detect problems before they start and finding conditions earlier increase your chances of successful treatment."

In 2008, TTUHSC School of Medicine faculty and medical students partnered with Lubbock Impact, Inc. to establish a local free non-urgent care clinic. The clinic’s mission is to serve the uninsured and the working poor, educate students through clinical experiences with close mentorship and create a bridge between the Lubbock population and health care service.

To make an appointment or for more information, call (806) 370-0603 or email freeclinic@ttuhsc.edu.
