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 RMPM event did not occur in 2020-2021 due to COVID-19, however, stay tuned for further updates on the event for 2022!
