TTUHSC School of Medicine students will host a Women’s Health Day free clinic on May 14 at the Free Clinic located at Lubbock Impact.
The Free Clinic, a Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) student-run clinic that serves the at-risk population of Lubbock and the surrounding area, uses telemedicine to help those in need during the COVID-19 pandemic.
I chose to pursue a career in medicine because each day presents with novel challenges and problems that when solved correctly can make a significant impact in someone’s life. The Free Clinic is an incredibly unique place that gives me the opportunity as a second-year medical student to take the information that I’ve learned in class and use it to make a difference in my community.
I started volunteering at The Free Clinic as a sophomore at Texas Tech University after hearing about it through a premed society I was a member of. I really enjoyed getting to work with medical students, residents and attendings all while being able to give back to my community.
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. Oct. 5 at The Free Clinic located at Lubbock Impact, 2707 34th St.
