The Student Run Free Clinic is hosting “Tater Tots for Tdap” on Thursday, November 17, at Happy Dog at Euclid Tavern to raise money for the purchase of tetanus shots for patients. Ticket purchase includes one hot dog ticket and a side of tater tots.
The event is from 7pm-10pm and will feature live music from:
- Toma Doe: Math/funk/indie/alternative music. This will be their debut show!
- Everyn: An instrumental-metal group that incorporates progressive rock and other experimental influences in hopes to strike a balance between familiar sounds and exploratory musical spaces.
- Jazz Quartet: Featuring Isaac Ghansah, Nikhil Krishnan, Nathan Radakovich, and Bobby Unge, students from Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine.
The Student Run Free Clinic is an interprofessional education initiative operated by social work, nursing and medical graduate students at Case Western Reserve University’s Mandel School, Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing, and the School of Medicine. They operate a free clinic two Saturdays a month offering acute care services, as well as community resources and links to insurance coverage.
The Student Run Free Clinic serves 400 patients a year, most of whom are uninsured or underinsured. However, about 50 patients are turned away each year who are in need of work physicals because their vaccinations have not been completed. By funding the purchase of Tdap vaccines, the Student Run Free Clinic can help a greater amount of patients receive their necessary vaccinations and obtain employment.
