The cost of healthcare continues to sky-rocket.

And now there's some help for people here in the Wabash Valley who can't afford quality care.

The Mollie R Wheat Memorial Clinic officially opened its doors Saturday.
Its goal is to provide services to individuals who are under-insured.
All services are free to patients.
The clinic is housed in the Landsbaum Center in Terre Haute.
Its run by medical students from the IU School of Medicine, ISU, and Ivy Tech under the supervision of licensed physicians.

"We're also going to be offering health education, once we do screen patients and come up with a diagnosis for them we're not going to hand them some medications and kick them out the door," Daniel Capes, Chairman of the center's board of directors said.

The clinic is open every Saturday from 10:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m.
