In today's world, given the economic status of a large percentage of our population, the education of a medical student is greatly enhanced by their participation in the care of the uninsured/underinsured.
The UR Well Clinic at Asbury First United Methodist Church was founded in January 2009 and provides opportunities for UR College of Medicine students to deliver medical care to the homeless, the needy, and those who cannot afford medical insurance. It is a critical component of medical student education.
During the past decade, the services offered at the UR Well Clinic have greatly expanded, creating the need for a larger, more accessible and modernized space and equipment. Our current design and structure creates a barrier for many guests, as they end up having to choose between food, clothing, or health care on any given visit when their needs often encompass all three.
We are excited about the plans for the new UR Well Clinic at 1010 East Ave and with your help, we can make this upgrade a reality to benefit patients and medical students alike.
