CARES stands for “Community Aid, Relief, Education & Support." The clinic aims to expose students to the nuances of providing patient care to a population with diverse and ever-changing healthcare needs. The clinic also works to foster inter-professional cooperation of students, healthcare professionals, and members of the community in addressing healthcare disparities while understanding community healthcare needs through service to the under-served.
