Community Free ClinicThe Community Free Clinic (CFC) was formed in response to a growing need in our community to provide free medical caredental care, and prescription medication for low-income residents of Morgan County. The original steering committee, consisting of healthcare professionals and community leaders, conducted a needs assessment and brought key people and groups together in support of the establishment of the Clinic. Local physicians and Hospitals embraced the idea. The Clinic is valued as a resource to care for those who cannot afford health insurance. It is also a valuable resource which helps alleviate the strain on our hospital system caused by individuals not having access to preventative primary care and other related services.

Anxiety comes in many forms, from the general worry that comes from everyday life to the intense fear caused by major psychiatric disorders. As debilitating as anxiety can be to our mental and physical health, it is also corrosive to our quality of sleep—whether you are a college student pulling an all-nighter or a veteran jolted awake from a nightmare caused by PTSD.  The Sleep Guide for Anxiety from Purple covers how anxiety and sleep are interrelated, change with age, and what you can do to improve both.
