Description:

IMSS provides the uninsured and low-income residents of Champaign County a free medical screening service that determines risk for Obesity, Diabetes, Hypertension, and Hyperlipidemia.  All screenings are scheduled and operated by undergraduate pre-health students, funded by Provena's Center for Healthy Aging and student fundraising, and supervised by licensed healthcare professionals. Their members volunteer at screening events by conducting tests and also volunteer at affiliated community health organizations to improve the healthcare access crisis in this area.  Established in Fall 2008, they have held over 25 screening events and have tested over 300 clients.  THey plan to hold at least eight events per semester and test 300 individuals.  Ultimately, they hope that their organization will serve as a template for other universities to serve their geographic area.
