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.
The annual Deron Cherry Celebrity Invitational Golf Tournament provides financial support for Score 1 for Health. Check back soon for more information about the next tournament and sponsorship opportunities.
Score 1 for Health facilitates
partnerships with more than 20 allied health schools to provide future
physicians, dentists, nurses, occupational therapists, speech/language
pathologists and medical assistants with clinical experience in
pediatric and community health assessments. Click here to find out more about partnering with Score 1 for Health.
