Medzou Golf Tournament

Spend a Day on the Greens and Help Fund a Free Community Health Clinic


Money raised helps MedZou clinic care for uninsured mid-Missourians

Calling all golfers or anyone looking for a chance to spend time on the greens with friends – this tournament is for you.

On Saturday, April 25, supporters of MedZou Community Health Clinic are hosting a benefit tournament to help cover costs of free primary medical care for uninsured mid-Missouri residents.

The fourth annual MedZou Golf Tournament will begin at 9 a.m. at L.A. Nickell Golf Course in Columbia. The tournament features a four-person scramble playing 18 holes, with prizes awarded to the winning teams and games throughout the tournament.

The MedZou Community Health Clinic is a volunteer organization operated by University of Missouri students including medical and pre-med students, nursing and social work students, and graduate students in health administration and health informatics.

MedZou provides ongoing, continuity of care for underserved individuals without other health care options. In addition, the clinic offers educational programs for patients with chronic illnesses and holds monthly specialty clinics in dermatology, diabetes, ophthalmology and musculoskeletal care.

Since its opening in October 2008, the MedZou clinic has served more than 1,300 patients, and the number of patients served continues to increase.

While providing high-quality, patient-centered care for uninsured residents, this program also serves as a learning environment to educate MU students about working with underserved populations.

The MedZou clinic is funded by grants, community donations, sponsors and the University of Missouri. The money from the golf tournament fundraiser goes directly to the clinic’s operating budget and will be used to provide equipment and care for patients.

The entry fee is $300 per team, which includes use of a golf cart, a goodie bag, lunch and beverages. To register for the tournament, please contact Katie Regan at cmr6f4@mail.missouri.edu or (816) 872-7486. The deadline to register is Tuesday, April 14.
