Last week the Ohio Senate approved an increase to our line item 440431. As the budget moves to the final desks of the Conference Committee and Governor this week, we at the Charitable Healthcare Network want to thank the Ohio General Assembly’s efforts to improve Ohioan’s access to health care and ask for the $1.5 million appropriation for Free Clinic Safety Net Services to be maintained.

“It’s all because of you guys, cause I didn’t have any insurance and I didn’t know where I would go. But you took care of me.”

Beyond receiving care, Maria and Rus are thrilled they “can give something back” to the students through education. Rus explained that the student-run free clinic is “a two-way partnership. The clinic helps the patient and the patient helps the clinical experience for the doctors to be.”

Karen initially came to LCFC feeling defeated and depressed, but instead, at the end of her appointments, she said, ‘Today I feel optimistic. Today I have hope.’

You might have to wait a little bit longer, but at least you’re getting seen by people and know you’ll be helped.
