Liberty University student-doctors served about 200 patients at a community clinic in Martinsville last weekend, providing physicals, flu shots, mammograms, and mental health and vision screenings. This is the fourth year the clinic has been held here, part of the school’s mission to reach underserved communities in Southside Virginia. A number of other colleges and universities took part in the clinic, including the University of Lynchburg, Averett University School of Nursing, and Patrick Henry Community College. The Danville Community College Dental Hygiene Program set up a dental clinic for oral screenings, teeth cleanings, extractions, and fillings.
