More Information

How to Volunteer
  • Clinical Volunteering
    • We currently only accept RowanSOM students for clinical volunteering and shadowing. Sign-up forms for our upcoming clinic days are sent directly to your Rowan email. Volunteers are assigned first-come, first-serve. 
  • Non-Clinical Volunteering
    • We conduct a number of community events in partnership with local organizations and always need a helping hand! If you are interested in volunteering at any upcoming non-clinical events, please check your email or our social media pages.
  • Join a committee to assist with projects we are working on! 
How to Donate
  • We encourage any and all donations, regardless of amount. Because we are an entirely volunteer-run clinic, 100% of all private donations go directly to providing and improving patient care. If you would like to earmark your donation to a specific service (such as covering lab expenses for patients), please email us at rowancommunityhealthcenter@rowan.edu to confirm that it is a service we provide. 
  • Donation Drives
    • We are also accepting donations for our community resource table, which provides toiletries and other supplies to the community for free.
    • If you are interested in donating food (non-perishables only), toiletries, or other items to our patients, please email us directly to schedule a drop-off. ​
    • For more information on our donation drives, email us or check our social media pages for more information.
