The Community Health Programs General Support Fund

Your gift helps Heritage College's Community Health Programs develop and deliver quality medical and health care services for children and adults throughout Southeast Ohio. Funds may be used to train student physicians while providing low-cost or no-cost health care to people in 25 southern Ohio counties.  

The Community Health Programs General Support Fund provides support for the Community Health Programs (CHP) within the Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine.  

 CHP offers a free medical clinic to adults, free women's health screenings, free immunizations to children who qualify, as well as low cost immunizations for adults. Our services are aimed at addressing unmet health care needs and are often geared toward clients and patients who lack adequate medical and health care alternatives. 

Community Health Programs also: 

  • Provides education and services to advance the health and well-being of underserved communities 
  • Provides patient-centered programs that support the transformation of rural health care 
  • Creates rural experiential learning opportunities for a diverse student population
