Last year, in response to the stay at home order at the beginning of the pandemic, The Ohio University Heritage Community Clinic (Ohio University Community Health Programs) immediately took action to find ways to continue providing care for their patients. They remained open even though their mobile units could not go on the road. Through SHF funds, the OUHCOM staff continued to treat returning and new patients at the stationary clinic, through telehealth, and over the phone. Gas and medication vouchers were provided as well as financial coverage for labs. They checked in with patients and delivered care packages of food, hygiene products, masks, blankets, crock pots, smoke detectors, and medical supplies. In short, they continued to show up for patients and continually adapted to meet their community's needs. Thank you, Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine, for all that you do for the community! ... See MoreSee Less
