WILMINGTON — Christen Johnson, a fourth-year medical student at Wright State University Medical School who serves as the national president of the 6,000-member Student National Medical Association, recently spoke to Wilmington Kiwanis.
Johnson spoke to the club about her group that is pushing to level medicine’s racial and ethnic playing field. A key issue for her is establishing bias training for doctors and ensuring that health policies are fair and equitable.
Johnson will graduate in May and she will soon learn where she be going for residency training.
Ryan Luckie from the Cincinnati Free Store Food Bank also spoke to Wilmington Kiwanis about helping people in this area to get services as SNAP health services and sign up for the ACA. Luckie would like to train people here in Clinton County to help provide services.
At the Ohio District Mid-Year Educational Day on Saturday in Columbus, the Wilmington Kiwanis Club was awarded a banner patch for contributing to the Ohio District Fund for helping various community service projects in the Ohio Kiwanis District.
The Wilmington Kiwanis Club meets every first and third Thursday of the month at 11:45 a.m. at the Wilmington Presbyterian Church at 840 Timber Glen Drive. The public is invited to attend the meetings and to join the club. If you are interested in serving the children of Clinton County and the world, contact Vermon L. Dillon at 937-382-9636.
