Birmingham Free Clinic (BFC) Outreach
As part of the Program for Health Care to Underserved Populations (PHCUP), and in partnership with The Salvation Army, the Birmingham Free Clinic (BFC) is able to provide and improve access to high-quality health care for our most vulnerable community members. In addition to its medical services, care at no cost to any patient, the clinic is also able to provide vital medications, all at no cost to any patient, thus enabling uninsured and medically underserved individuals to receive appropriate and uninterrupted therapies.
The BFC operates several weekly, pharmacist-managed sessions, in partnership with pharmacists from the University of Pittsburgh Grace Lamsam Program, to further assist in addressing patients’ chronic disease management and medication access needs. This includes two Medication Therapy Management (MTM) clinic sessions and one smoking cessation session. Patients seen during the MTM sessions receive medication management, disease monitoring, blood work evaluation and health education services.
