Diverting opioids off the street is a primary objective of the IPA and Compassion Center. Therefore IPA prohibits the recommendation of narcotics at any/all of it's associated Free-Clinic Events. While it is understood that these clinics only provide a limited range of care and services, we must disclose this to those who wish to participate up front in order for the event to be fair.
TeachOneServeTen.org is a community based partnership between the IPA (Integrative Providers Association), the Compassion Center, the University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine and other local businesses and business leaders just like you - which lead us to measurable, compassionate and logical impacts that can be felt locally in the workforce and supporting economies.
Uncompensated care has cost American healthcare systems $745 Billion since the year 2000, with no end in sight. That equals to a lot of debt regardless of your health status. It's time we try something radically different to stop the ongoing hemorrhaging and restore stability in our healthcare systems. How many more Hahnemann University Hospitals have to close before we step up?
Each free-clinic sets out with a goal to care for upwards of ~5,000+/- local qualifying citizens providing any one or more solutions for pain management, minor health issues and other conditions that would normally go untreated due to a lack in insurance coverage and/or inconsistent medical supervision.
Non-Narcotic pain management solutions are highlighted with patients who are seeking an effective alternative to their existing opioid medications. Furthermore: As a matter of policy, IPA will not allow its [student] providers to recommend opioids at any of its ongoing events or IPAC medical conferences.
Attendees are provided with viable alternative to opioids for chronic pain relief. In some cases, the professional provides a mix of conventional, ancient Chinese medicine and acupuncture to address chronic pain, but in any case, providing safe alternative are paramount to a successful treatment plan outcome.
Drawing expertise from every corner of civic duty, the IPA amalgamates select groups of professionals at key points in time to compound services to those in attendance, who are also in need, stretching the most out every outreach dollar. From health and legal clinics to career development workshops, IPA is leading towards measurable impacts that strengthen and empower our local communities through wholeness and inclusion for a better tomorrow.
The current state of healthcare is in peril due to a variety of systemic breakdowns, but the breakdowns that surround opioid use disorder are disrupting society, and crushing our misconceptions of health. The T1S10 Clinics address a variety of the circumstantial factors regarding the emerging opioid addiction crisis, and provides patients with ongoing non-opioid pain management solutions to some of the systems most desperate patients trying to escape intractable pain.
When minor health issues, minor offenses, food and shelter issues and joblessness factor in, the local economies become unstable and suffer as a result of the cyclic breakdowns in workforces and associated supply chains, not to mention the compounded effects it has on the hospitality and service industries. IPA sets up job fairs and only allows companies who are hiring to sponsor those portions of the event so people get back to work.
Using a specific ratio of 1:10 and an established formula of educating providers, Integrative Providers Association and Compassion Center orchestrate a free-clinic that cares for approximately 10 patients for every provider educated. Patients are seen for any one or more specific conditions, provided an exam and recommendation, and sent home with tools, resources and follow up referrals for after-care should that be necessary. Since programs target those who do not qualify otherwise for medicare, medicaid or assistance, and cannot afford insurance - all who fit into those categories qualify for the free health care.
As far as measurable impacts go: the current total combined cost of ~$500 per each clinical practicum and exam in the free-clinic saves a struggling healthcare system anywhere from $600 - $3k off the cost associated with delivery of these programs will only go down and open the program up to more services as we hone our skills, processes and critical points of reference for analysis.

As healthier futures are brought within reach for attendees, the providers being educated are also learning new, healthier directions and ways to lead their patients.

Qualifying patients get a no-cost recommendation (minus state fee) to any qualifying state medical program (if any exist) and an education on the best practices, dosing and/or safety considerations.
From Landlord-Tenant law to Labor & Wage law and minor criminal record expungement - these clinics are geared to serve those who need it most.
