Cleveland Clinic's Office of Community Outreach Expands to Serve Our Community
Every day, Cleveland Clinic is finding new ways to engage and serve the community. The efforts of Cleveland Clinic Community Outreach are guided by the belief that the entire region benefits when people are physically, mentally, and emotionally healthy. That mission has been enhanced as Community Outreach staff throughout the Enterprise now work under the direction of Pamela Holmes, Senior Director of Community Outreach in the Office of External Affairs. As a result, the Office of Community Outreach can provide and support health and wellness education programming in communities stretching from Avon, Lorain and Wooster to Cleveland’s far eastern suburbs.
Our office builds innovative partnerships with community members through a wide variety of health and wellness programs, health talks and chronic disease management services. We work with community groups and organizations throughout Cleveland Clinic’s regional footprint to bring health screenings and educational programs to surrounding neighborhoods As a result, thousands of individuals have the knowledge to make positive health and wellness choices.
Cleveland Clinic provides health initiatives, education and resources to benefit all of Northern Ohio. These include health assessments, clinical screenings, neighborhood education classes, health coaching, community resource and referral, and community service opportunities for employees.

Cleveland Clinic Sponsors First Fairfax Arts and Heritage Celebration
Cleveland Clinic was a proud sponsor of the First Fairfax Arts and Heritage Celebration, which occurred in our main campus neighborhood on July 21. East 89th Street was closed for the day from Carnegie to Quincy avenues and thousands of residents and neighbors attended.
Cleveland Clinic's Community Outreach team provided hundreds of visitors with a range of screenings, including glaucoma and blood pressure. The kids were encouraged to "move it" with pedometer challenges and a Cleveland Clinic Wellness hopscotch mat, featuring the 5-to-Go tips for Healthy Living.
Other departments responsible for the success of the event were the Cleveland Clinic Police Department, Grounds and Transportation Services and Cole Eye Institute. Thanks to all! Cleveland Clinic is committed to being a good neighbor in all the communities where we live and provide services. This event made a positive impact on our friends in the Fairfax community."
Our outreach programs range from free health screenings, clinical services, education classes and health coaching.
