Free Health Care in East Nashvilleby Carole Bartoo Jul. 12, 2012, 2:54 PM
The Vanderbilt University School of Medicine’s student-run Shade Tree Clinic has served uninsured patients well over the last six years. Now, thanks to community partners including United Neighborhood Health Care, they have a beautiful new facility. New research underway at the clinic is important for the future of health care, especially in underserved populations, but more importantly, patients say it’s helping their health improve.
For more information about the clinic, go to The Shade Tree Clinic’s website.
