CMU Street Medicine aims to improve the health aspect of people's lives right here in Mount Pleasant. The last Wednesday of each month we set up our clinic at the William and Janet Strickler Nonprofit Center to provide health histories, vital checks, and various other health care checks. We have a low-cost vaccination option offered through the health department as well.
We are looking for funds to help our organization take off. We help with the cost of vaccinations and provide health care supplies and over the counter medications like vitamins and cold & flu medications. If you choose to donate to us, this is where the funds will be used.
