Winona's new resource for health promotion and preventive health care services opened Thursday.
Bridges Health Winona is a collaboration between Winona State University, Live Well Winona and Neighborhood Family Clinics. Community members can visit Bridges Health Winona Thursdays from 3 to 6 p.m. for free health support regardless of whether they have insurance. Bridges is located at 619 Huff Street inside NFC and Live Well Winona.
Bridges promotes a preventive health care approach to achieve a healthy lifestyle, with the idea to help "bridge" the gap between individuals and health. Focus is placed on patient physical and emotional health.
No insurance or appointment is needed to receive care at Bridges. While anyone interested in learning how to improve their health is welcome, Bridges Health Winona is particularly interested in serving those who are uninsured or underinsured. Care is administered on a walk-in basis, and all ages are welcome.
