MEDiC Program Establishes Pediatric Clinic

The UW School of Medicine and Public Health (SMPH) MEDiC program has established a new pro bono clinic in Madison specifically for children.

The new pediatric clinic is a partnership with the Center for Families (CFF) on Fordem Avenue, a nonprofit organization that provides social services to address the needs of families. Nearly 85 percent of children served at the CFF are from households at or below 100 percent of the federal poverty line.

The monthly clinic is staffed by UW students from the medicine, nursing, pharmacy, physical therapy and physician assistant programs; social workers from the CFF; and UW medical faculty.
