COVID-19: Keeping Campus Safe.

History & Mission


For more information, email marshallmedicaloutreach@gmail.com.

Marshall Medical Outreach (MMO) was founded and organized by students at the Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine in 2011. Under the guidance of School of Medicine faculty physicians and steadfast community volunteers, MMO offers on-site clinical and social services to the area’s homeless and unemployed populations.

On one Saturday of each month, MMO volunteers set up a mobile clinic at a designated spot in Huntington to provide free medical care. A mobile clinic van, provided by the Robert C. Byrd Center for Rural Health, and a series of organized tents allow us provide immunizations, screenings, physical exams and ophthalmology services. After being seen by a physician, patients can collect doctor-recommended medications at the MMO pharmacy. Physician referrals and follow up care with Marshall Family Medicine are also frequently recommended. Through these services, our goal is to provide a continuity of care and extend valuable medical and social resources to those most in need.

With the help of donations and continuing interest, MMO has grown from three to an average of 40 medical student volunteers and physicians each month. Our group works with a long-standing and extensive assembly of community groups who provide social care and donations to the homeless in Huntington, West Virginia.

In 2013, MMO received the Heart for the Homeless Award from the Cabell-Huntington Coalition for the Homeless.
