American Idol funds Ho-Chunk mobile clinic

American Idol Funds Mobile Clinic for Ho-Chunk Nation ChildrenFor 1,455 children throughout the Wisconsin Ho-Chunk Nation, life is about to get a bit healthier thanks to American Idol Gives Back Foundation.

A mobile health clinic on wheels, the first of its kind in Indian Country, will make it easier for Ho-Chunk children in more remote communities to get the medical care and services they need. Children's Health Fund has provided the clinic to the Ho-Chunk Nation Department of Health, which will staff and operate the "doctor's office on wheels."

The clinic was funded by Idol Gives Back Foundation, a philanthropic organization established by producers of the television program "American Idol."
