Fairfield U. matches children ages 12 - 18 from the Fairfield community of Huntington, WV with Marshall University medical students.

The goal of Fairfield U is to integrate medical students with the community while providing student mentees with valuable, fun, educational opportunities. We hope to "Inspire Intellect" and encourage our mentees to find their passion, advancing on to pursue post-high school education or job training.
