Services Provided

Previous CMDA events include involvement with the Dublin Food Pantry, the Clintonville Resource Center after-school program, Gladden Community House Education Project, city-wide and campus-specific CMDA social meetings, and weekly local Bible studies. Guest speakers also benefit OU students and faculty by educating them on medical ethics and faith-related issues from provider and patient perspectives.

Tentative Schedule for 2019-2020

The main events currently scheduled include the weekly Bible studies (open to all students) and the monthly Kairos social gatherings (for CMDA members). Both types of events should require no financial backing.

We will attempt to bring in roughly one speaker per semester as well as one philanthropic event per semester. At the end of the spring semester, we will likely have another sendoff dinner for the graduating CMDA members at a local CMDA physician's home. Any fundraising necessary will be through CMDA physicians in central Ohio.
