The Mollie R. Wheat Memorial Clinic is a 100% free student-run clinic offered by IU School of Medicine-Terre Haute students with the help of volunteer physicians. The clinic is named after Dr. John Wheat's mother who passed away from breast cancer in 2013, and whose life exemplified all that the clinic seeks to represent today.
At the clinic, we work with massage therapy, physical therapy, social work, and dietetic students from Indiana State University to offer well-rounded care to our patients. There are many FREE healthcare services that are offered for patients of all ages including: acute care visits, health screening, wellness checks, routine labs, patient education, and referrals for specialty care. The clinic has a functional lab where we can order basic lab tests for our patients. We also plan specialty clinics throughout the year such as women’s health, cardiology, optometry, dermatology, and men’s health. We believe that by these means we can accomplish our mission statement which is "To educate and prepare future rural healthcare workers by enriching and caring for the underserved population in our community in an interprofessional environment."
You may be wondering where the Mollie R. Wheat Memorial Clinic is located. We are located at Landsbaum Center for Health Education at 1433 N. 6 1/2 St. on the Union Health campus. The clinic is typically open on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays from 8am-12pm, from August to May, with summer dates too. Appointments can be made at https://www.mwmcth.org/, but we also welcome walk-ins. Follow us on Facebook for regular updates about the clinic! We look forward to serving you in the future!
