RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - The University of Nevada Reno, School of Medicine announces its free Student Outreach Clinic for June, in a continuing effort to assist northern Nevada’s medically uninsured with needed health care services.

A general clinic, serving men, women and children of all ages, will be held Saturday, June 10 from 8 a.m. to noon. This will be the only clinic held in June due to students’ summer schedules.

The free clinic offers a variety of services, including access to head start physicals, sports physicals, well checks, sick visits and immunizations for children, as well as pap smears, pregnancy testing, gynecological exams, breast exams, STD testing and mammogram referrals for women. In addition, the clinics also provide x-rays, immunizations and lab services, like cholesterol checks and blood glucose monitoring, for all patients.

Clinics are held at the School of Medicine’s Family Medicine Center, located on the University of Nevada, Reno campus just north of Mackay Stadium off of North Virginia Street.

No appointment is necessary. Clinic patients are seen on a first come, first served basis.
