2. This Free Health Clinic is being conducted by volunteer physicians, dentists, pharmacists and other health care professionals/assistants (“Volunteers”) for my best interests, and is preliminary in nature only and is provided free of cost.

4. It is my responsibility to follow up any recommendations that are made to me during this screening, and obtain follow up advice, testing, diagnosis and advice from my personal physician.
5. I agree to indemnify and hold harmless the participating Organizations including the WBHSFCF, authorities of the City and facility holding the Free Health Clinic and Volunteers from any and all claims, liability and expenses (including attorney fees and other costs) arising out of advice given or not given, test conducted or any act or inaction on the part of the participating Organizations or Volunteers or any of them, during or after participation. The health screening process will be rendered by volunteers only; no compensation is expected or charged. By rendering my consent to this screening process, I understand I am not receiving medical services and therefore agree to indemnify and hold harmless Organizations including the WBHSFCF, authorities of the City and facility holding the Free Health Clinic and Volunteers from any and all claims, liabilities, and expenses including attorney fees and court costs, arising from my participation or the advice given or not given, test(s) conducted or as a result of this health screening.

I expressly waive my rights of privacy and physician/patient privilege and authorize the filming or photographing of my person or likeness for usage including but not limited to films, published articles for commercial as well as non-commercial purposes. I UNDERSTAND THAT MY SEEKING THE ADVICE OF PHYSICIANS AT THIS HEALTH FAIR DOES NOT CREATE A PHYSICIAN/PATIENT RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN MYSELF AND ANY PHYSICIAN OR HEALTH CARE PROVIDER AT THIS FREE HEALTH CLINIC.
6. I acknowledge that I have read this Waiver, or have had it read to me, I have understood the provisions, or have had it explained to me, and my waiver is made knowingly, voluntarily and intelligently.
