About Score 1


  • Many children in the Kansas City area do not receive the healthcare they need or deserve. That's where Score 1 for Health comes in. We focus on reaching children in greatest need by administering free, comprehensive health screenings in an environment that's safe and easy: the child's own school.

    Our goal is to ensure that Kansas City's elementary children have the ability to succeed early in life, not limited by undiscovered health problems.

  • The Score 1 for Health program is a community outreach effort provided by Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences. A staff of registered nurses, nutrition experts and support staff administer the program and KCUMB’s first- and second-year osteopathic medical students participate in health screening days, gaining valuable clinical experience in pediatric health assessment while providing an important community service. Our efforts are made possible by those who are committed to the Score 1 for Health goal: healthier kids for a healthier future. As we remain focused to this vital community outreach, we continue to expand our community partnerships, providing access for even more children and families each year.
