The Wingnut Collective is serious about wanting to start a free medical clinic in Southern Barton Heights. We need a space in which to do this. We made an offer on a building that would have worked quite nicely, but unfortunately it looks like it might be sold to someone else. If anyone knows of a space in Southern Barton Heights we could purchase for a fairly cheap price please let us know.

The other things that could be really helpful to get this program off the ground would be- medical professionals in the area willing to help in some way, and donations of medical supplies.

If there are any doctors or nurses or EMTS etc. in the area who would be interested in helping us in some way  that would be awesome. Whether it be just sit down and talk with us about what things a medical clinic might need, to things we should be careful about etc. We could use advice on what sort of medical issues might be more common. We could also use medical professionals willing to teach us some basic medical practices that we can safely use to help our community. Some of us are trained EMTs and medics, but we would love to have some refreshers etc. (more…)
