OutReach serves to provide quality health care free of cost to all Portage County area residents through community health education and the SOAR Student Run Free Clinic (SRFC) in partnership with Student OutReach to the Area Residents (SOAR, LLC). OutReach is a student organization established on the campus of Northeast Ohio Medical University (NEOMED) over 6 years ago. OutReach has historically existed as NEOMED’s medical and pharmacy students’ outreach to the area underserved of Portage County. Students have been involved in education classes and service projects for community members.
Thanks to the students' tenacious planning and fundraising with the support of NEOMED staff, the SOAR SRFC is now open. SOAR SRFC is a Volunteers in Medicine Clinic located on the campus of Northeast Ohio Medical University (NEOMED) in the NEOMED Education and Wellness (NEW) Center. SOAR SRFC provides primary care services free of charge to those in the Portage County area that cannot afford these services otherwise.
OutReach’s students help to ensure there is support for the SOAR SRFC by applying for grants, hosting an annual casino night, working with the staff from NEOMED and other fundraising initiatives. The students and faculty of OutReach and the community of Portage County, thank you for your consideration to gift and support the SOAR SRFC!
