VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) –People who have jobs, but not insurance have a place to go in Valdosta.

First District Congressman Jack Kingston toured the Partnership Health Center Monday and talked to them about possible federal grants.

The Center is a free health clinic on Woodrow Wilson Drive.

The Congressman said health reform is not finished.

He says free clinics like this help people who may be too wealthy for medicaid.

"Our patient load has greatly increased over the last couple of years and there's just a lot of needy people and the roles of the need people are growing as our economy changes and fluctuates," said Partnership Health Center Executive Director John Sparks.

The center is booked for two months and needs volunteers to help out.

You can get more information on the clinic by calling (229) 245-0020.
