Mission: IAMACF's mission is to serve the under-served and underprivileged by providing free primary healthcare and participating in humanitarian projects in the state of Illinois.
IAMACF offers free primary care to members of the community. The free health clinic is primarily run by volunteers including physicians, medical students, translators, as well as a handful of employees. In addition to primary care, we offer specialty clinics, targets programs, lifestyle workshops, free (limited) pharmacy services, and lab testing. IAMACF is also a teaching clinic for medical students from six of our area’s medical schools, including the Chicago Medical School, Loyola University, Northwestern University,
Midwestern University, University of Chicago, and University of Illinois at Chicago. We are always looking for ways to improve our ability to serve the community.
The West Ridge community is home to one of the most culturally diverse communities, as it is a gateway to numerous immigrant and refugee populations in Chicago. The free clinic sees low-income populations, who are uninsured and under-served. IAMACF provides quality and critical medical care while maintaining the culturally sensitive environment that is needed for the patients. We largely serve the South Asian community, however anyone and everyone is welcome at the IAMACF clinic.
Saturdays: New Life Volunteering Society organizes and runs the Saturday clinic by recruiting volunteer physicians and medical students from various Chicagoland hospitals and medical schools.
Sundays: Midwestern University's Medical School gives medical students in medical school the opportunity to have a hands-on clinical experience and learning from teaching physicians provided by IAMACF.
