I will be spending tomorrow (Feb. 9) at Health Care Access, a clinic that serves low-income, uninsured Douglas County residents.
The staff is kindly allowing me to spend the day at the clinic and get a feel for what life is like at the clinic.
There are an estimated 14,000 residents in the county who do not have insurance.
I hope to be able to talk with patients who use the clinic as well as the staff and volunteers who make such care possible.
It also just happens to be the last day the clinic will be taking care of patients at 1920 Moodie Road, where it has been located for 18 years. It will be moving over the weekend to a new location, 330 Maine, across the street from Lawrence Memorial Hospital.
So, if you have a question about the clinic, please let me know by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or in the comments below.
I also will be Tweeting from the clinic throughout the day under the name LJW6NEWSHealth.
