Steuben County women will soon have a new option for receiving free healthcare. With support of a grant for $12,000 from the Women’s Fund of Steuben County Community Foundation, Cameron Hospital is opening the Women's Health STI Clinic on August 1st. Women will be able to receive free, confidential testing, with treatment available through the clinic for women who receive a positive test result and their partners. Additional information on safe sex, the impact of STIs, and counseling will be available through the clinic as well.
Susan Allshouse, a member of the Women’s Fund of Steuben County Community Foundation, shared her excitement for the community impact this program will create. “I am very happy that this clinic will be available to all women to allow them to seek help when they may not have otherwise. I particularly hope that this will help stop or to some degree alleviate the spread of sexually transmitted diseases, especially among college students and other young adults who may be too scared to seek help otherwise.”
The Women’s Fund is pleased to support this community program and address an important health concern for Steuben County women. The clinic will be located at the Urgent Care of Cameron Hospital building at 1381 Maumee Street in Angola (next to the Dairy Queen). Clinic parking and entrance are at the back of the building.
