General Information

The Medical Subspecialties Workgroup under DAWN clinic, a student-run free clinic Dedicated to Aurora’s Wellness and Needs, provides specialty care services to underserved patients in the Aurora community surrounding the Anschutz Medical Campus. Clinic is held on the 3rd Tuesday of every month at Dayton Opportunity Center from 6:00 – 9:00 PM. MD/PA/Nursing students work under DAWN’s network of subspecialist providers to provide exams, consultations, testing, and support to patients with related acute concerns or chronic diseases. Our on-site teams include:

We work with patients with any complaints of acute or chronic vision disturbance or loss or are diabetic/pre-diabetic. We perform eye exams and vision testing for, prescribe prescription lenses, and diagnosis and treat eye diseases (glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataracts).
We provide comprehensive mental health evaluations, medication management, and support for patients. We also treat conditions such as depression, anxiety disorders, attention-deficit disorder, trauma, personality disorders, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and other mental health conditions.
We provide family-centered pulmonology services which include lung function testing in symptomatic patients along with evaluation and treatment of chronic lung conditions (asthma, bronchiolitis, emphysema, COPD).
