What is ‘Share the Health’ all about?
Begun in January, 2014, Share the Health Free Gynecology Clinic is a community-supported free clinic that offers intermediate gynecologic care to uninsured women in the Dane County and surrounding communities. This monthly clinic is hosted at Madison Women’s Health and is staffed by volunteer health care providers and employees from various clinics and health systems in the area.
Patients come to Share the Health by referral only from various health clinics. Typical patients are ones who receive screening care at other clinics in the Dane County area, but cannot provide “next-level” diagnostic gynecology care. An example might be diagnostic colposcopy following an abnormal Pap test.
The clinic operates on the third Thursday of each month. For more information about Share the Health, please visit their website www.sharethehealthwi.org.
