Cass Clinic is a free medical clinic established for the medically underserved in the city of Detroit. It is run by Dr. George Costea, Dr. Robert Sherwin, and the medical students of Wayne State University. The clinic operates almost exclusively on donations from physicians and the community.  With the current state of the economy, we are seeing more patients than ever. We are currently in high demand for prescription diabetes and hypertension medications, but accept most medications. Additionally general antibiotics, over-the-counter analgesics, antacids, anti-histamines are needed. We anticipate a need in the fall and winter months forover-the-counter cold remedies, lip balm, foot powder, hats, socks and gloves. We accept most medications that have expired after 2005. Currently, the clinic cannot accept any psychiatric medications. The clinic also has use for blood pressures cuffs, pen lights, otoscopes and other physical diagnosis supplies. If you are interested in supporting Cass Clinic please contact Mona Fayad, at mona.fayad@wayne.edu. 

There are a number of ways we can arrange an exchange of donations:

1) If you are located near the School of Medicine, it may be possible to drop off a donation.  Please contact a coordinator to determine the current location that donations should be dropped off.

2) If you would like to arrange for one of the Co-Coordinators to pick up the supplies from your office/residence in the greater Detroit area, please simply email a coordinator to arrange a time and place for the exchange.

3) Shipping donations may also be an option.  Again, please contact a coordinator for more information.

Again, on behalf of all that are associated with Cass Clinic, thank you very much for your interest in supporting us!

Sincerely,

Cass Clinic Co-ordinators
