Columbia University Harm Reduction (CUHR) Clinic

In 2008, three first year medical students at the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons started volunteering on outreach shifts with the Washington Heights Corner Project (WHCP). These individuals went on to establish a student group, originally called the Columbia University Harm Reduction Outreach Network (CUHRON), to organize students around harm reduction. In 2010, these students began working with WHCP staff and colleagues at Columbia University affiliated clinics to coordinate an onsite medical student-run clinic at WHCP which opened in August 2010. Now renamed the Columbia University Harm Reduction Clinic (CUHR), in Spring 2017, operates every other Thursday from 6:00pm-8:00pm with the assistance of Dr. Silvia Amesty.
