What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Score 1 For Health

One of the University’s most important outreach programs is Score 1 for Health (Score 1). This program helps address health equity, with first and second year KCU students providing more than 12,000 health screenings annually for area school-age children. Score 1 prioritizes service to those most in need by providing health assessments for children from low-income families, and those living in our urban core. When needed, Score 1 registered nurses and Community Health Worker refer children and their families to community health-care partners for free or reduced-cost medical and dental treatment, and track referrals to ensure treatment occurs. Our Score 1 program aligns with the Kansas City Chamber of Commerce’s Urban Neighborhoods Big 5 Initiative, and provides our students with invaluable clinical experience early in their medical education.
