Free health care for children at Clear Creek Amana Health Clinic

IOWA CITY, Iowa – Beginning in August, the Clear Creek Amana Health Clinic in Tiffin will offer free health care for children. All children with an appointment will receive a complete physical exam, an evaluation of their immunization status and information about resources available to parents and children in their communities.

The clinic, located in Grace United Methodist Church, was started in March 2000 by the Neighborhood Centers, the Johnson County Department of Public Health and the Iowa City Family Planning Clinic. These three agencies will be joined by the Iowa City Free Medical Clinic, which is providing a pediatrician, Andrea Sherbondy, M.D., to work at the Clear Creek Amana Health Clinic.

Sherbondy received her training in pediatrics at University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, specializing in developmental disabilities. Sherbondy looks forward to providing a wide range of services for children.

The Clear Creek Amana Health Clinic is open from 1 to 6 p.m. on the first and third Thursday of every month. To make an appointment at the Clear Creek Amana Health Clinic, call (319) 335-8541 or toll free (888) 884-8946.

For more information, please contact Natoshia Askelson, health educator at the Iowa City Family Planning Clinic, at (319) 335-8434
