The Department of Family and Community Health continues its involvement in Marshall Medical Outreach, a free mobile health clinic that provides medical care for the homeless and those at risk of homelessness in Huntington. Under the supervision of Dr. Charles Clements, Marshall Medical Outreach provides primary care to its patients, and, within the last year, has expanded its services to meet the needs of those it serves. As a medical student-led service, Marshall Medical Outreach gives medical students an opportunity to become involved in medical community service.
The mission of Marshall Medical Outreach is to provide continuity of care to those in need, and medical students and physicians volunteer their clinical resources to provide comprehensive care to these people. Marshall Medical Outreach operates one Saturday each month at Trinity Episcopal Church, and in its four years of operation, it has received funding from grants, community businesses and organizations and private donations.
The Department of Family and Community Health has been a charter partner in the development of Ebenezer Medical Outreach (EMO) since its inception in the late 1980s. At that time the department collaborated with the Ebenezer Methodist Church to provide health care to uninsured patients of our community and has been a significant force in leading the initiative through extraordinary growth to the multi-service community institution it has become. Additionally, the historic Douglass Center, which houses the EMO clinic, pharmacy and dental suite was purchased by Marshall University in 2015. In the face of significant funding decreases by the state of West Virginia, the department has been working diligently to keep the mission of EMO active in our community by leading the transitions needed to continue providing health care services to the uninsured of the region. We have supported the effort to procure additional funding from WV DHHR that will assist in keeping EMO financially viable for the upcoming year. The chairman of our department, Dr. Stephen Petrany, remains medical director of the EMO clinic and vice-president of the board of directors. He and Dr. Nair continue to provide regular supervision of resident care at the center at no cost to EMO.
The Department of Family and Community Health provides comprehensive primary medical care to clients participating in Recovery Point WV's addiction recovery program in Huntington. We have started a clinic on-site where the residents of the Recovery Point can be seen by one of our family physicians for acute and chronic medical problems during their stay. Twice monthly, we provide a physician, a nurse, and an assistant, and also bring some equipment, while utilizing available space at the facility. Additionally, our activities there allow the center to obtain discount drug testing for all of their clients, resulting in a substantial cost savings that can be reinvested into the recovery effort. We acquire 25 new patients per month during the 2 half days of service. This work has been cited by the Huntington City Mayor as an outstanding contribution to our community that allows those in recovery to have their medical issues addressed while they seek addiction recovery. Given our community’s problem with substance abuse and addiction that has garnered much needed attention recently, every small effort can become an important piece of the overall solution to what sometimes feels like an overwhelming problem for our region.
Marshall Family Medicine Faculty and Residents help provide medical coverage for the Bechtel Summit Boy Scout High Adventure Center in Summersville, West Virginia. They provided medical coverage for over 1,000 scouts, exchange students and other participants for one to two weeks each summer. This allows the Center to provide high quality medical support in a high risk environment.
The Department of Family and Community Health has provided uncompensated support to Marshall Athletics for many years. Our faculty and resident physicians have provided hundreds of hours of sports medicine coverage to the university and the local community and the state during the last year. We provided coverage for several Marshall Varsity teams:
In addition, our faculty and residents provided medical support to local high school football programs. Team physicians include:
Our faculty and resident physicians have also supported many local and regional sporting events during the 2014-15 year:
With many faculty, residents, and students interested in sports medicine, the Residency Program voluntarily provides sideline coverage for local high schools and for Marshall University Athletics. Sports and events covered include football, basketball, soccer, wrestling, cross country, track and field, baseball, softball, and mass-participation events.
