    Score 1 for Health

    Score 1 for Health® is a preventive health program for elementary-aged children built upon the belief that optimal health and well-being enhances one’s ability to learn, grow and develop creatively.

    Spirituality in Medicine

    KCU is uniquely positioned within the osteopathic academic community to step to the forefront in the research and practice of training spiritually cognizant physicians. The foundation of KCU’s Spirituality in Medicine program has been in place since 1998 and the study of spirituality is currently being conducted by first and second-year medical students; however, there is much room for growth and expansion.

    The University is one of only three medical schools in the United States to twice win the prestigious John Templeton Spirituality in Medicine Award, most recently for integrating elements of spirituality, end-of-life care and diversity throughout the entire medical-school curriculum. With support the University can establish a Research Center for Spirituality and Bioethics and begin a formal process of research and integration.
