Hey everyone! We're so excited to formally announce that the Equality Clinic will hold its first clinic Wed Sept. 10th at 6:00 PM on the Health Science Campus of GRU, and will then be open every month on the 2nd Wed. We will be offering comprehensive primary care services, gender transition-related medical care, and referrals to safe, welcoming, and competent area providers for more advanced services. The clinic is open to low-income (under 200% poverty, see page for details) and un-insured or under-insured (you have insurance, but it does not cover a specific service we offer, i.e. gender transition) patients of all sexual orientations and gender identities. Please see our page, contact us, or contact me if you have any questions and want to know how you can help!

An interdisciplinary free-clinic on the campus of AU in Augusta, GA filling the healthcare gaps for the un- & under-insured members of our community.

Date set for next year. Let us know if you would like to be involved
