The Indian American Medical Association (IL) Charitable Foundation (IAMACF), is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit primary care healthcare community clinic located at 2645 W. Peterson Avenue, in the heart of Chicago's West Ridge community.  The West Ridge community is home to one of the most culturally diverse communities, as it is a gateway to numerous immigrant and refugee populations in Chicago.  The clinic serves over 3000 people annually with operating hours on Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm and Wednesday evenings from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm.  It is run by volunteer physicians, including members of the Indian American Medical Association of Illinois, and medical students coordinated by New Life Volunteer Services.  The free clinic serves low-income populations, who are uninsured and underserved in that have no affordable or culturally competent medical facility for their healthcare need.  The IAMACF community clinic provides a culturally appropriate environment, with volunteer physicians and volunteers who also extend free (limited) pharmacy and lab services to walk-in clients.  The IAMACF is also a teaching clinic for medical students from six of our area's medical schools, including the Chicago Medical School, Loyola University, Northwestern University, Rush University, University of Chicago and University of Illinois at Chicago.
