Photo of a MEDEX volunteer washing someone's feetThe clinic serves an average of 15 to 25 people every month, with care ranging from general foot and nail health needs to basic care of ulcers, fungal and toenail problems. We refer and link our clients with significant mental or health concerns with local community resources to ensure they receive appropriate medical care.

We run 100% off of student, faculty and community donations, averaging $350 a month, to provide free clean socks and other foot care necessities. Each person served receives a foot care kit and a free pair of socks.
