The middle-aged man walks on the floor of the Lucas Oil Stadium with a cell phone close to his right ear. He looks up and around the empty stands, talking as if he would like everyone else to hear.
“Yes, I am inside the stadium!” he proclaims to someone on the phone. “Yes, I am walking right on the floor of Lucas Oil Stadium … and I am getting free health care!”
The man’s excitement is palpable, as a calm volunteer waits to usher him to the righthand corner that doubles as one of many makeshift waiting rooms.
It is April 18, the second day of the 2022 Pathway to Health Indianapolis mega-clinic. An untimely overnight spring flurry has held up some prospective patients. Not this man, who has reached the free clinic sponsored by several Seventh-day Adventist Church entities and ministries. He is one of many hoping to get treated and feel better by the time he leaves the venue.
