Through the Farmworkers Program, Proteus provides scheduled health clinics throughout the state for farmworkers. During the winter months clinics will be held in Clarion, Des Moines and Ft. Dodge, see the full schedule here.
Anyone interested in receiving health care services that is unable to attend on the scheduled dates can call the locations toll free to schedule an appointment. Proteus has bilingual staff on hand and the clinics are staffed with a Provider (either a Nurse Practitioner or Physician Assistant) that can prescribe medications on hand or provide vouchers for nearby pharmacies. Fees are based on the patients income and a sliding scale, rarely does a patient pay more than $5-$10.
