Faith Medical Clinic also was a total loss after the fire, the Daily Press & Argus reported. The fire was initially deemed accidental, but remains under investigation.
The U-M Student Run Free Clinic was founded by students and funded by the U-M Medical School Dean’s office and Michigan Central Student Government. Students run office operations at the U-M Clinic, while a faculty physician at the Medical School provides care to patients.
