CORPUS CHRISTI, TX — The Department of Defense's 807th Medical Command Innovative Readiness Training Program offers medical services to community members during a pop-up clinic across Nueces County.

At no cost to the patient, people can receive dental care, including fillings, extractions and cleanings. Eye exams, custom-fabricated prescription glasses, physicals, mental health checks, and even veterinary services for their pets are being provided to the community.

The mission of the pop-up clinics is to bridge the gap between the extensive need for health services.

This opportunity allows military medical personnel to assist and connect with the community while offering them medical services that they otherwise would not be able to get when faced with various challenges.

The pop-up clinics will last until July 27 at several locations across the area. Below is a list of the location, date and time of the upcoming events.
