What We Do
The Partnership for Ongoing Developmental, Educational, and Medical Outreach Solutions (PODEMOS) strives to provide both essential primary care services to marginalized communities in Honduras and a valuable educational experience to its student participants at The Ohio State University. Our foundation is built upon the concept that consistent short-term interventions can provide important long-term value to patients who would otherwise have no access to management of chronic or debilitating conditions. By focusing on an interdisciplinary approach, innovative medical record keeping, and relationship-centered care, we are making strides toward our goal of providing an essential sustainable service to our patients. Our vision is to create a site for long-term outreach and clinical care where health professional students can be directly involved in caring for and learning from patients from the marginalized populations in Honduras.
