Medical students and faculty at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine have opened a free health clinic in northern Hamilton County to increase access to health care for uninsured patients. The clinic was created by students, who provide the care under the supervision of physicians.

Caroline Hensley is a medical student entering her fourth year who has spearheaded efforts to open the health clinic. As a master's of public health student working at the Crossroad Health Center in 2016, she noticed many patients lacked insurance and lived outside of the central city core.

The clinic is located at 11345 Century Circle West, in Springdale, Ohio, and will initially operate from 9:00 a.m. until noon every Saturday.

Joining Cincinnati Edition to discuss the clinic are UC College of Medicine Medical Student and Founder of the clinic Caroline Hensley; James L. Winkle College of Pharmacy Student Keely Morris; Department of Family and Community Medicine Associate Professor Megan Rich, MD.

Listen to Cincinnati Edition live at noon M-F. Audio for this segment will be uploaded after 4 p.m. ET.
