Department of Family Medicine Annual Report 2004-2005 Development Development Fund efforts have been increasing each year in the Department of Family Medicine, and the 2004-2005 academic year continued the trend. Newer funds include: the Medical Students Program Fund, the Residency Enrichment Fund, the Department Chair’s Fund for Excellence, the Rural Education Fund, and the Urban Education Fund. At the present time, the Rural Fund is primarily supporting efforts in the Rural Residency in Logan County, and the Urban Fund is primarily supporting the Urban Residency at OSU East. One general fund in the Department, #303130, allows a donation to be spent on the Department’s current needs and/or the donor’s request. Programmatic leaders assist in administering development funds. For example, Dr. Linda Stone, Predoctoral Director, coordinates the Medical Students Program Fund, and Dr. Randy Longenecker, Rural Residency Program Director, coordinates the Rural Fund. Our institutional Development Officer, Jennifer Daly, works hard with faculty and staff members regarding development efforts. Her support is greatly valued and appreciated.
A donation to an endowment account enables a small percentage to be spent annually, based on interest earned. A donation to a current expense account enables immediate use of principle plus interest earned. Endowment account and current
expense account numbers for the above include:
Other funds in the Department include: 1) the James Martin Byers, Jr., MD Memorial Fund, which fosters rural family medicine; 2) the Marianna H. and P. Tennyson Williams Endowment Fund, which supports fellowships, prioritizing those individuals pursuing academic careers in family medicine; 3) the Alice and Peter Lancione, MD Endowment Fund supporting scholarships and partial stipends with preference to those students expressing a commitment to family medicine in a small Ohio community; 4) the Thomas E. Rardin Family Practice Center Fund which supports the costs of equipping and maintaining the Ohio State Thomas E. Rardin Family Practice Center; and 5) the Marie J. and Robert S. Young Fund in Family Medicine, which fosters education in family medicine especially in rural settings. Endowment account and current expense numbers for
these accounts include:
Significant fund expenditures during the 2004-05 academic year were:
Rardin Fund: Renovations at the Northwood and High Building, $2,450, to improve video-teleconferencing capabilities Byers Fund: One rural summer externship, $5,995, for the Rural Health Scholars Program In addition, there are three College accounts that have been primarily available to the Department of Family Medicine. The John J. Fahey Fund in recent years has supported the Rardin Family Practice Center and department-related needs. The Crisafi-Monte Fund, as of June 30, 2005, with $1,279,371 in market value, was dedicated to support the Primary Care Research Institute. It is available to support scholarship and teaching in heart, lung, and related disorders. The Lloyd L. and Ilma Dowell Family Medicine Fund, with a market value of $38,049, supports activities related to heart disease and Alzheimer’s disease.
Department of Family Medicine Annual Report 2004-2005 Clinical Services This has been an exciting year of growth for the Clinical Services of the Department of Family Medicine. We have consolidated some of our sites and established a number of new and innovative sites. We added all new sports medicine doctors, increased our nursing home coverage, and added wound care to our services.
We also experienced a very tragic loss to our Department with the July 2, 2004 death of Dr. Bryan Beggin. Dr. Beggin first joined the Department of Family Medicine as a resident in 1989. He completed his residency in 1992, serving as Chef Resident his third year. Dr. Beggin joined the faculty upon completion of his residency and established one of the first outreach sites, OSU Family Medicine at Gahanna. Over the years he worked hard to build the practice into one of the most successful and busiest sites in the Primary Care Network. Dr. Beggin was Vice Chair for Clinical Affairs for the Department from 1998 to 2002. He was loved by patients, colleagues, students, and residents alike and has been greatly missed.

Integrative Medicine The OSU Center for Integrative Medicine opened in the spring of 2005 housing the practices of Drs. Glen Aukerman and Diane Manos, along with chiropractic, mental health, physical medicine, alternative medicine, and movement arts practitioners.
This model brings traditional allopathic providers together with complementary and alternative practitioners under unified administrative processes with a focus on collaborative patient care. The model also facilitates continuing education for practitioners as they learn from each other through first-hand mutual patient care goals.
Glen Aukerman, MD, was appointed as the Medical Director of the Center and Director of the Division of Integrative Medicine in the Department of Family Medicine.
Community Partnerships Access Health Columbus We have partnered with Access Health Columbus to provide care to the indigent population in a number of our practice sites along with the cooperative development of the South High Street site.

The Rardin Family Practice Center houses this initiative, which provides care one-half day per week for non-English speaking patients, primarily an indigent population. It functions as a free clinic with Dr. Theresa Hom providing the clinical services.
