The Weill Cornell Community Clinic (WCCC) is a student-led initiative that addresses the need for accessible and equitable health care for uninsured New York City residents while enhancing the philanthropic spirit of students and faculty at Weill Cornell Medical College (WCMC). WCCC provides high quality primary health care services to uninsured New Yorkers through consultation, treatment, referral services, preventative care, and screening forno cost permanent health care insurance programs. In addition, the WCCC operates a Women’s Health Clinic and partakes in community outreach campaigns and community health screenings. Concurrently, WCCC educates medical students on the medical and social issues surrounding the care of poor populations in order to foster a sense of civic responsibility and humanitarianism in medicine at both the Weill Cornell Medical College and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital (NYPH).
