The University of Toledo CommunityCare clinics aim to provide healthcare for the underserved and raise healthcare awareness in the Toledo area.
The clinics provide opportunities for volunteers to explore societal issues, practice principles of public health and leave an impact on the community. Students work both inside and outside of the clinics and learn multiple facets of healthcare service including medicine, pharmacy and physician assistant work.
CommunityCare is provided at three local clinics. The Mildred Bayer Clinic for the Homeless works with volunteer health professionals, students and physicians and the Neighborhood Health Association to provide their care. CommunityCare is offered here twice monthly on Tuesday Evenings.
CommunityCare has opened two of their own clinics in recent years. The Community Care Free Medical Clinic was established in 2010 and provides free, comprehensive medical care to under-insured Toledo residents. They opened the Community Care Women’s Health Clinic in 2013 and they work with a Fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists to provide general women’s wellness services.
All staff at the CommunityCare clinics work on a volunteer basis and 100% of all donations go towards patient support and resources. Each year over $20,000 is spent by CommunityCare on medications, clinic supplies and patient services to keep the clinics operating. If you wish to donate, donations to the UToledo CommunityCare Clinics can be made online at utcommunitycare.org/donate.
