Barbershop Health Checkups

Service to the community is an important aspect of a medical education. Medical students are involved in a variety of activities that include the Barbershop HealthCheck program. In this program, students coordinate health screenings and limited health education at local barbershops. Blood pressure checks and body mass index tests are provided.
In addition, medical students are involved in fundraising activities that include an annual dinner planned and hosted by first year medical students and community walks benefitting various non-profit health service organizations.
