WSU nursing and veterinary medicine hosting Healthy People + Healthy Pets clinic

The WSU College of Nursing and WSU College of Veterinary Medicine are coming together to offer a free health and pet care clinic to homeless and low-income people and their pets.

The event, “Healthy People + Healthy Pets” will be held on the WSU Health and Sciences campus in Spokane on Nov. 9.

Last year, the clinic brought in more than 200 people and their animals.

Clients – both people and pets – will receive health screenings, immunizations and simple treatments, all at no cost. The clinics are staffed by nursing and veterinary medicine students under the direction of faculty members of the two colleges.

The clinic is supported by a grant from the MultiCare Community Partnership Fund and the Denice Murphy Community Nursing Endowment at the WSU College of Nursing.

The drop-in clinic will take place at the WSU Veterinary Specialty Teaching Clinic at 218 E. Spokane Falls Blvd. on Friday, Nov. 9 from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. There is a limit of two pets per person or family.
