This a free clinic stationed at the Wise County Fairgrounds in Wise, Virginia every July. It provides free medical care to all patients who show up, including preventative care, eye exams and dental work. Each year, a group of residents and attendings travel to the clinic and gain first hand experience helping underserved communities in the southwestern Virginia region.
As school sports start up in the fall, pre-participation physicals are required for all athletes. Our residency collaborates with schools in the area to set up exam rooms and perform these physicals. Not only is this convenient for the students and their parents, but it also allows for more experience in sports physicals for our residents.
