The SLU Health Resource Center (HRC) provides basic medical services such as work or school physicals, acute care visits and laboratory testing at no cost to uninsured or underinsured patients in North St. Louis. SLU student volunteers at the clinic learn to perform a comprehensive history and physical exam and learn to identify and address behavioral and social factors relating to addiction. In line with the goal of providing holistic care, the HRCs weekly clinics also include behavioral health volunteers from the SLU Department of Psychology and Medical Family Therapy program to provide more targeted evaluation, counseling and referral for patients identified to be struggling with substance use disorders.

The Health Resource Center is an open door clinic that has been providing several critical health services to the North St. Louis community since 1994. Services are free so that anyone—regardless of income or other circumstance—can seek attention at the clinic. As a result, the HRC relies 100% on donations and fundraising.
