The Health Outreach Project provides care to underserved populations in Berks County through free health clinics and services run by Drexel medical students. Our programs provide opportunities to address obstacles to health care, including language and cultural barriers, hours of operation, lack of insurance, homelessness, and drug and alcohol addiction. The poverty rate in Reading has ranked among the highest in the United States, and the city itself has a large immigrant especially Hispanic population. Our goal is to partner with local organizations that have been working to meet the particular needs of these populations, who often face health disparities and barriers to care. It is important that we give back to this community that has been so welcoming to our medical school.
