Community Health Center newsletter

It is with pleasure that I welcome you to the Coppin State University Community Health Center. It is with a great deal of personal and community pride that I extend warm greetings and invite you to visit and use the Center. Founded in 1994 by the former Dean of the School of Nursing, Dr. Doris Starks, the Center is a non-profit, community-based primary care clinic that provides comprehensive primary care to the underserved and uninsured residents of the Coppin Heights community, also the faculty and staff at the University.

The Center is also proud to serve as the Student Health Center and provides learning experiences for both graduate and undergraduate nursing students at Coppin State University.

Its mission is to provide quality health care that is sensitive to societal needs, demands, and values with providers that are culturally sensitive and responsive to changing trends and needs of the inner city. As an integral part of the School of Nursing and Coppin State University, the Center is committed to the mission of its parent institution.

Dean and Professor, School of Nursing
