Bear clinic provides accessible care to uninsured, underinsured
21 Oct 2020
Opening a free health clinic during a pandemic would seem daunting to most, but the creators of The Bear Care Health and Wellness Clinic weren’t worried at all.
The Bear Care Health and Wellness Center, also known as the Bear Care Clinic, is a free school-based clinic that offers a wide variety of services to all students in the White Bear Lake Area School District. It is a supplement care clinic that works as a nonprofit entity and is located on the White Bear Lake High School – North Campus.
“Our mission is to provide accessible care to uninsured and underinsured children to improve health equity and health outcomes for our community,” said Jessica Miehe, clinic creator. Miehe is an assistant professor of nursing at St. Catherine University.
