Global Health

CommunityOutreachImagine a place with limited access to hospitals, clinics or medical providers. Imagine a community lacking in basic medical care, emergency treatment or disaster relief. Imagine a society in which preventable diseases and conditions go unnoticed and undiagnosed.

At OSU Wexner Medical Center, we cannot – and will not – imagine such a world.

That's why we're committed to global medical missions and relief efforts.

From nutrition education to post-catastrophe medical response, our faculty and staff invest time, money and care into the health and lives of people around the world.
