Former Workers Say OSU's Strauss Ran Off-Campus Clinic

Former employees say the Ohio State University team doctor accused of groping young men decades ago also had an off-campus men's clinic, which ran ads in the campus newspaper promising quick treatment of genital problems. 

The ads published in 1996 do not mention Richard Strauss. But two former students who say they did clerical work for Strauss confirmed the connection and described the clinic he briefly ran in an office building roughly a mile from campus. One of those ex-employees, Brian Garrett, is among the 145 former students who have reported firsthand accounts of sexual misconduct by Strauss.
