Testicular Cancer Foundation (Single Jingles)

Testicular Cancer is the No.1 cancer in young men ages 15 to 35. It is highly survivable if caught early. Single Jingles teaches men and their families about the disease and about the importance of self-exams.

The TTUHSC Laura W. Bush Institute for Women’s Health was established to create a new approach to women’s health care. Modern research proves that some diseases react differently in men and women – challenging health care professionals to design special approaches to providing personalized women’s health information, disease diagnosis and treatment .

SaveMyHeart’s goal is to improve a community’s coordination efforts of reducing cardiac related deaths by 2017, through the implementation of an evidenced-based interprofessional community service program focused on strategically improving the utilization of Automated External Devices (AEDs) within the community. AEDs increase the survival rate of persons who experience cardiac emergencies and data has shown that small businesses in Lubbock are in need of increased cardiac/AED/health education.
