Along with free and charitable clinics across Wisconsin, the Wisconsin Association of Free and Charitable Clinics, Inc. is celebrating the first annual Wisconsin Free & Charitable Clinics Week (#FCCWeek) April 4-10, 2016.
“While the ACA has helped more than 207,000 Wisconsinites obtain health insurance this past enrollment period, gaps remain for those who still cannot obtain insurance,” said Dr. Katherine Gaulke, Executive Director of the Wisconsin Association of Free & Charitable Clinics. “We welcome the opportunity to highlight the work Wisconsin free and charitable clinics are doing to address those gaps.”
