TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – The ribbon was cut and the doors are now open at the Mollie R. Wheat Memorial Clinic.

The new free clinic opened on Saturday in the Landbaum Center on N. 61/2 Street here in Terre Haute.

The free services will be provided by the Indiana University School of Medicine students where they will offer health screenings, routine exams and patient education.

“We don’t just see the illness that the person has; we see the whole person,” explained Daniel Capes, Board of Directors. “We understand that there are barriers to healthcare, and we want to help patients utilize the resources that are already in the Wabash Valley.”

Services are available for all ages and the students will get hands-on learning while at the same time providing affordable healthcare to those in the Wabash Valley.

The clinic is operated on a first come, first served basis and they will be open on Saturdays from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.
