Dates set

for free clinic

WATERLOO — April dates have been set for the Allen College Engagement Salvation Army Partnership free clinic. They are:

  • 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday.
  • 1 to 5 p.m. April 25.
  • 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. April 26.

The ACE-SAP free clinic is located inside the Waterloo Salvation Army. Attendees are to use the chapel entrance at 207 Logan Ave.

Additionally, social workers from UnityPoint Health-Allen Hospital will be at the ACE-SAP free clinic from 2 to 4 p.m. Thursday to assist community members in completing advanced directives, which includes a living will and durable power of attorney.

A living will enables patients to dictate specific treatment plans for medical conditions considered terminal.

Social workers can also educate patients regarding IPOST (Iowa Physician Orders for Scope of Treatment) and refer to other resources as necessary.
