We are showcasing our clinic with the good people in Cottage Grove on August 25! South Lane Mental Health is hosting this event with the hope that it will encourage practitioners in the area to assemble a similar service. We are putting this together as a full, working clinic and we will be seeing patients. All healthcare practitioners are invited to observe the process to get an idea of the viability of a free service in their area.
The Eugene Celebration is preventing us from practicing in our usual spot but look for us back in the Park Blocks on 8th and Oak the following Sunday. Thank you Lane County Mental Health for opening your space so that we can continue to offer healthcare for all!
Tetanus, diphtheria, and whooping cough. Oh my! This Sunday is the last time to take advantage of our grant with Lane County Public Health for free Tdap vaccines. Meet us at the Park Blocks at 8th and Oak between 1-3pm for your update. Come at 1pm to sign up.
I just received the good news from Mason at Mountain Rose Herbs that there is another mobile free clinic in Atlanta Georgia called the Herbalista Free Clinic. The organizer is a talented herbalist named Lorna Mauney-Brodek who also runs her own herbal consulting practice.
They run a mobile clinic nicknamed the Herb Bus which is focused on herbal medicine and also hosts a weekly foot care clinic. They are pioneering natural medicine outreach by scheduling monthly visits to a variety of locations throughout the city.
The Herbalista Free Clinic hosts regular classes on health. They post information regularly on their blog, facebook page and website. It is easy to keep updated. They are also firm believers in spreading the good word about organized alternative medicine. Herb Bus has procedures and manuals available on line. These people are VERY impressive.
We welcome our brothers and sisters in healing to the mobile clinic community. We appreciate the inspiration.
