Rich Man Poor Man Charity Dinner
The Rich Man Poor Man (RMPM) is an annual fundraising event that includes speakers and discussions on relevant public health topics and highlights pertinent gaps in access to healthcare for underserved populations. The event also includes an auction and dinner.
Proceeds from the event are shared with other non-profit organizations/charities and are used to support the ongoing efforts at the Student Run Clinic and provide healthcare access and resources to those in need.
The event is returning this year on Nov 30, 2022 and will focus on Refugee & Migrant Health!
We hope to see you there!
