SUBMITTED NEWS RELEASE

The University of Nevada School of Medicine will hold one free Student Outreach Clinic this month on Saturday, December 17 from 8 a.m. to noon. This clinic will focus on basic medical care for children.

No appointment is necessary for clinic patients who are seen on a first come, first served basis. Early arrival is strongly recommended. Spanish translators are available as needed.

All 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. Take RTC bus route 7 to North Virginia Street or the free Sierra Spirit bus.

The School of Medicine includes 16 clinical departments including family medicine, pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, internal medicine, surgery, and psychiatry and behavioral sciences, and five nationally recognized departments in basic science including microbiology and biomedical engineering. The more than 185 doctors of University Health System, the school’s clinical practice, offer care in more than 40 medical specialties and subspecialties with eight physician offices in the Reno/Sparks area and seven in Las Vegas. The school is committed to a best practices approach to medicine and is dedicated to exceptional healthcare for Nevada now and in the future. For more information visit www.medicine.nevada.edu.
