For more than 35 years, UC Davis has been operating student-run clinics in the inner-city neighborhoods of Sacramento, providing free health care to uninsured, low-income and other underserved populations. Operating on weekends, UC Davis' student-run clinics serve several distinct groups of patients, providing them culturally sensitive health care in a respectful and comfortable environment. The clinics offer thousands of people what is often their only access to health care. The program also gives medical students and undergraduates hands-on experience and to learn first-hand about the challenges and rewards of patient care and community medicine. Your gift will be used to support these clinics, which provide additional training to our medical students in delivering primary care services while simultaneously improving access to care in underserved communities.
