PATH Clinic

Under the direction of Michele Talley, PhD, ACNP-BC, FAANP, the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Nursing partners with UAB Medicine to operate the nurse-managed PATH (Providing Access to Healthcare) Clinic in the Community Health Services (CH20) Building at UAB.

This collaborative effort, a continuation of the PATH Clinic formerly located at M-POWER Ministries, utilizes an interprofessional, team-based model to provide diabetes care at no cost to an uninsured medically underserved population discharged from UAB Hospital.

Services provided include nurse practitioner visits, physician visits, optometry, nutrition, mental health, physical therapy and assistance in obtaining needed medications at the lowest possible cost. This clinic also provides opportunities for students from a variety of disciplines to learn in an innovative interprofessional model of care.

Current patients: For medical issues between 8:30am & 4:00pm Monday - Friday, call 205.209.6010.
