The Score 1 for Health Community Report provides four years of continuous health data and trends on urban Kansas City school children.
Our program provides free health screenings for elementary-age children at urban Kansas City schools
KCU's 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.
Addressing disparities in access to health care for children and families in the Kansas City metropolitan area for more than 20 years, Score 1 for Health provides free, in-school health screenings, preventive health education and health-care mentors for children. Score 1 for Health focuses on reaching children in areas of greatest need, including urban core, underprivileged and low-income families.
Each year, Score 1 for Health serves more than 13,000 children living in the Kansas City’s urban core. In 2014, the program screened children in 50 schools within the Kansas City, Mo., Raytown, Center, Hickman Mills and Kansas City, Kan., school districts. KCU’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.
