Many of our faculty and residents are active both locally and internationally in medical outreach. You can contact Doctor Howie Werman for information about helping with any of these projects.
Doctors Howie Werman and Rick Nelson regularly volunteer their time with the Physicians Free Clinic, which is operated by the Columbus Medical Association and Foundation. The Clinic meets every Monday night at the Columbus Health Department from 6P to 10P and sees patients with urgent primary care needs as well as specialty surgical and medical care needs. Students from the OSU College of Medicine first and second year classes regularly work with the faculty in the Clinic.
Doctors Mark DeBard and Howie Werman are also active at the Columbus Free Clinic. Below is a video about the Columbus Free Clinic. The Clinic operates every Thursday night at the Rardin Family Practice Center from 6P to 10P. Patients with limited financial resources are seen without charge for their primary care needs. Emergency Medicine residents have participated in the clinic. OSU College of Medicine students administer and staff the clinic.

Physicians, nurses, pharmacists and lay personnel staff the Ebenezer Medical Clinic which sees patients with medical needs in the community.
