U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown to Lend Support at MedWorks' Free Medical Clinic This Weekend
Date:7/24/2009

CLEVELAND, July 24 /PRNewswire/ -- MedWorks (www.medworksusa.org) will provide free access for the uninsured and underinsured to a wide range of health care providers from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, July 25 and 26, at the W.O. Walker Center, 10524 Euclid Ave. The event is the first mass health clinic sponsored by MedWorks and will provide 1100 medical, 300 vision and 200 dental patient visits. Appointments were scheduled by patients in advance through a phone bank operated by volunteers and coordinated by WKYC Channel 3 the week of July 13.

More than 500 health care volunteers from University Hospitals of Cleveland, The Cleveland Clinic, MetroHealth System, the Case Western Reserve School of Dental Medicine and Cleveland's broader healthcare community will join forces that weekend to serve Ohio's underserved population. Approximately 20 subspecialties will be represented, from general care to dermatology, urology, cardiology, neurology, infectious diseases, and more.

MedWorks is working with local healthcare institutions to provide follow-up care after the event, according to Zac Ponsky, MedWorks founder and event organizer.

"We are working to secure agreements with a range of providers to enlist their support in encouraging each of their doctors and nurses to volunteer at least four hours a year seeing patients at the area's free clinics and other safety net providers," said Ponsky. "That level of commitment would provide valuable care to thousands of needy families and individuals. It's a seemingly small gesture from the individual, just four hours a year, but in fact it would represent a true breakthrough in providing vital healthcare to those currently unable to get the care."

Several local and national public officials have been invited to the Clinic to lend support to the MedWorks effort, the first time such an event has been held in Northeast Ohio.

U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown will be touring the clinic on Saturday, July 25, 2009 at 10 a.m.
