Organizers tell WFXR News that teams from the Fralin Free Clinic and the Rescue Mission of Roanoke will hold this pop-up clinic from 1 to 4 p.m. on Thursday, April 7 at the Ram House on Campbell Avenue SW.

The pop-up clinic reportedly started in January with the goal of providing homeless individuals with access to ongoing medical care and stable housing, while also spreading awareness about the Fralin Free Clinic and its services.

In fact, the medical provider in attendance, Anders Sylvester-Johnson, is the grandson of one of the founders of the Fralin Free Clinic, according to organizers.
