ComCorps, an AmeriCorps program
Community Health Programs
Make a difference, fulfill unmet health care needs, explore health careers
COMCorps is an AmeriCorps program, housed in the Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine Community Health Programs. COMCorps’ mission is to increase access to:
- evidence-based nutrition education
- healthy fresh food
- physical activity
- preventative and primary health care services
COMCorps members serve an 10.5 or 12 month term packed with 1,700 hours of life-changing experience serving others. COMCorps service members are active in schools and agencies as they deliver health-related programs and implement health-related projects. Many of our COMCorps participants often go on to pursue careers in medicine and health care.
COMCorps is supported by ServeOhio, the state's commission on service and volunteerism, and local community partners.
AmeriCorps is a network of local, state and national service programs that put into service more than 70,000 Americans each year in an effort to address critical needs in education, public safety, health and the environment. AmeriCorps is often referred to as a “domestic Peace Corps.” Its members serve with more than 3,000 non-profit organizations, public agencies, and faith-based and community organizations.
