UR Well Student Outreach represents an important resource for the community of Rochester and education of aspiring physicians at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry. We are an entirely volunteer-run organization that addresses the health care needs of the impoverished and homeless populations within the community. We provide affordable health care services to patients that often have no other means of obtaining it.

We have partnered with St. Joseph’s Neighborhood Center to provide weekly primary care to our patients by appointment. We also operate a weekly acute care walk-in clinic at Asbury First United Methodist Church on East Avenue. Annually, we see over 1,000 patients with a myriad of health concerns. Students gain invaluable experience providing work physicals, managing chronic health issues, and tending to acute care needs in this under-served population.

We are currently organizing our annual 5K Run/Walk fundraising event to help defray the costs incurred by patients. As a student-run volunteer organization, support from local businesses is essential in making this event a success. Financial donations help us to purchase supplies and equipment necessary to continue providing quality patient care.
