Within its more than 6 million residents, Indiana is widely diverse with a varied population. Its climate is comparably mild, with moderate temperatures throughout all four seasons so there is not much weather or geography-based to affect health in the state, however Indiana has its own crosses to bear in terms of healthcare, specifically with obesity.

Health Issues in Indiana

Obesity is a growing problem in America, one that shows itself especially in the south and the midwest. In Indiana alone, studies suggest that by 2030, more than half of Indiana's population will become obese. The resulting problems are numerous, ranging from heart disease to stroke. Diabetes, high cholesterol and blood pressure, heart attacks, and problems with bone and joint health will run rampant—and for some people they are already serious issues. These health issues will put a heavy strain on the states healthcare infrastructure. The state also has a problem with Lyme disease. Owing to rural, heavily forested areas, many places in Indiana have a serious tick population. Since Lyme disease can present in seemingly common symptoms such as joint pain, some who are infected may not even realize they have a problem.

Urgent Care in Indiana

To assist with general wellness, preventative care and non-emergent healthcare needs, there are more than 80 urgent care centers in Indiana, more than 50% of which are open seven days a week. These centers, generally staffed by physicians, can offer support for obese or overweight patients and treatment for those suffering from Lyme disease or other ailments.

Walk-in Clinics in Indiana

Indiana also boasts dozens of other walk-in clinics including more than 35 retail clinics, which can be found at Walgreens and CVS pharmacies, as well as other large retail centers, throughout the state. These retail clinics are not able to diagnose and treat all the conditions that an urgent care is able to, but they are more than capable with minor injuries and illnesses including cold and flu symptoms, stomach bugs and minor sprains and strains.

Specific urgent care and walk-in clinic services available in may include STD testing flu shots, school physicals and many other valuable services
