Established in 1974, the ACORN clinic serves a variety of people in North Central Florida.  The medical workers at ACORN which stands for Alachua County Organization for Rural Needs, provides medical assistance to people who may not have medical insurance, especially in these tight economic times.  As Florida’s 89.1, WUFT-FM’s Stephanie Bechara reports, even the clinic could use more funding and helping hands.
