The University of Southern Indiana is partnering with HOLA and EVSC on its third Community Health Center, located at Lodge Community School.

The new health clinic, which had its “soft opening” Thursday, aims to serve the surrounding Latino community.

HOLA is a non-profit based in Evansville that holds regular health fairs for Hispanic immigrants in various locations around the Tri-State.  Volunteers from USI's nursing department regularly work these events, hence the partnership on the new health center.
