In August 2018 the Association spearheaded Illinois’ fourth annual Free and Charitable Clinics Month to tell our communities the critical and vital role clinics play in the safety net health care system in Illinois.
We used this month to reach potential new patients, let existing donors know that their contributions remain needed and valuable, and increased recognition from local elected officials.
In 2018, 14 clinics participated in Free and Charitable Clinics Month, hosting 17 events across the state, including:
Tri City Health Partnership
Chicago Dental Society Foundation Clinic
Norwegian American Hospital Care-A-Van
Bolingbrook Christian Health Center
Community Health Care Clinic
Family Health Partnership Clinic
DuPage Health Coalition/Access DuPage
The Night Ministry
Will-Grundy Medical Clinic
Indian American Medical Association
Old Irving Park Community Clinic
Events included direct medical and dental care, screenings, open houses, health education, access to medication, and expansion of clinic resources.
