A new nonprofit effort is working to give medical care to uninsured Crawfordsville area residents.
The Montgomery County Free Clinic will offer general practice and dental services to patients with incomes up to 200% of the federal poverty level.
Board member Dr. Janet Rucker says the facility is named after Dr. Mary Ludwig, a longtime supporter of free medical services in the area.
"When she came to Crawfordsville to practice medicine, she found that she just couldn't charge people for her services. It was very difficult for her to charge for it."
