Services will include: medical exams, dental exams, mammograms, pap smears, vision screenings, prescription assistance, legal counseling, haircuts, physical therapy, lunch, a food pantry, and a clothes closet.

The Touched Twice Health Clinic, a free, one-day health clinic, will be held on Saturday, June 4 in the Highlands of Louisville, Kentucky. The clinic is sponsored by St. Paul United Methodist Church (St. Paul Church). The Touched Twice Health Clinic is part of Touched Twice United, a national ministry that identifies churches across America that are capable and wiling to provide care to their community.

“The Touched Twice Health Clinic is needed in Louisville and everywhere that poverty affects families’ access to quality health care,” St. Paul Church Director of Discipleship and Connection Cody Nygard said. “In order for communities, from our neighborhood to the world at large, to flourish, basic needs must be met. Food, clothing, medicine, and companionship are all essential to life, and the Touched Twice Clinic offers these and so much more.”

The June 4 clinic will be held at St. Paul Church from 9:00am to 3:00pm. All services provided are free and open to anyone who needs them. No registration is necessary.

“Last year, the Touched Twice Health Clinic saw a child with severe dental decay and could not eat properly. The family was struggling with another child on the way. The Touched Twice Clinic put them in contact with a generous dentist who was able to make arrangements for procedures which would fix the child’s dental issues. Those procedures are still on-going today, but because of the connections made at the Touched Twice Clinic, this child, and this family, is on a path to wellbeing.” Now, Nygard looks forward to working again at the Touched Twice Health Clinic, along with dozens of volunteers, to serve great people of Louisville.
