LCOM Cares

COM Cares

The LCOMCares Service Corps was initially created as a COVID-19 Task Force to help facilitate volunteer efforts and services pertaining to COVID-19 between the Larner College of Medicine faculty, staff, and students, the University of Vermont Medical Center, the College's clinical partners, and the surrounding community.  

The goal of COM Cares shifted over time to facilitate community collaboration and serve as a centralized group that identifies and communicates community service needs and opportunities for LCOM students, staff and faculty. 

The group follows best practices for institutional community service programs, works closely with the Student Council Community Service Chairs, and plans community-wide Community Service Events.
