IAMACF Patient Receives Accurate Blood Pressure Reading From New Equipment

Indian American Medical Association Charitable Foundation (IAMACF) Free Health Clinic is a free health care clinic established in 1994 to provide free
health care for underserved communities and people without health insurance. The mission of IAMACF is “to serve the underserved” and provide
basic primary care, preventive medical care, and public health education with dignity and respect for all.

A grant from Washington Square Health Foundation provided medical equipment in exam rooms to replace outdated equipment which did not provide accurate readings. Much of the medical equipment at the clinic was over a decade old. This new equipment will help read the information accurately and provide accurate health information to the patient. For example, some medical students would bring their own equipment to examine the patients, which provides accurate health information.

The clinic has a list of approximately 62 physicians who regularly volunteer to provide medical services at the clinic during office hours on Saturdays and Sundays from 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM. IAMACF also serves as a teaching clinic for approximately 80-90 medical students from six area medical schools. During each school term, medical students from Northwestern University, University of Chicago, Midwestern University, the University of Illinois at Chicago, Loyola University, and Rosalind Franklin University Medical School see patients at the clinic.

IAMACF Free Health Clinic annually serves approximately two thousand patients. The services include primary healthcare, periodic specialty clinics, free lab testing, free limited medicines, free immunization (flu shots), and free health education.
