Free mobile medical clinic visits Coos Bay in August
COOS BAY, Ore. -- A free medical clinic from Lane County will visit Coos Bay next month.
Occupy Medical provides basic medical services.
The bus will be at the Nancy Devereux Center.
First aid care and diabetes treatment are some of the services offered.
Occupy Medical has been in Lane County for more than four years.
Each year the group provides a demo clinic in a different community.
"We had a patient a few years ago that walked from Coos Bay to Eugene to get help. Now, he came for one condition but ended up needing some pretty extensive foot treatment by the time he got here, and that was a fairly clear indicator that Coos Bay needed some attention," clinic manager Sue Sierralupe said.
The group says they need medically trained volunteers, social workers and supplies.
The Devereux Center is accepting donations of non-expired vitamins and first aid supplies.
Free medical care will be available on August 28 from 11:45 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
