The clinics were previously held at Nebraska Medicine's Fontenelle Clinic in North Omaha. Starting on Jan. 14, RESPECT Clinic (Responsible Early STD Prevention Education and Community Testing) will resume weekly sexually transmitted infection (STI) screenings on Monday evenings. Starting Jan. 16, GOODLIFE Clinic (Greater Omaha Outreach for Diabetes Lifestyles Impacting Fitness and Education) will resume monthly diabetic care.
All SHARING Clinics exist to provide health care from all disciplines to low-income, underserved populations. There is a great need for faculty supervisors in the clinics. If you would like to be involved, please contact faculty recruiters Kaitlin Hehnke or Ann Pearson.
Keyonna, I agree. I wonder the reasons for the move.
It's interesting that these clinics were moved to the DOC. They were located in the community that it served making it convenient and more accessible. If the population being served by these clinics are low-income, they may not always have transportation to make it to the clinics now located on campus. Also, the campus is not easy to navigate which is also a deterring factor for this population to visit these clinics. I truly hope it works out as the services provided by these clinics are much needed.
