The DAWN Clinic has certain testing equipment that produce immediate results, which trained clinic volunteers may use to help make important healthcare decisions. Examples of these include:
- Lipid panel test for cholesterol
- Blood sugar test for diabetes
- HIV tests
- Strep throat and influenza tests
Finally, the DAWN Clinic has relationships with local radiologists for patients needing medical imaging. If student volunteers identify you as a patient who needs one of these tests, we will work with you every step of the way to have the test performed and the results communicated back to you.
We can also help with:
