The Northeast Ohio Medical University Class of 2012 from the Colleges of Medicine and Pharmacy donated $1500 to Akron Community Health Resources (ACHR). The donation, collected from class of 2012 activity funds, has become a tradition in recent years as each class has raised funds for ACHR’s Portage Community Health Resources (PCHR) underserved clinic located in Kent, Ohio.
The clinic promotes health and wellness and provides health care for the medically underserved or underinsured. Additionally, the clinic provides affordable health care to people in Northeast Ohio. The clinic was established in November 2008 with the help of individuals from Northeast Ohio Medical University, community members from Portage County and Robinson Memorial Hospital. The clinic is designated as a federally qualified health center.
