ATSU and Corbin’s Legacy hold ribbon-cutting for school-based Pediatric Screening Program

October 17, 2018
Posted In: Arizona Campus, Events, SOMA, University Headlines

On Monday, Oct. 1, A.T. Still University’s School of Osteopathic Medicine in Arizona (ATSU-SOMA) and Corbin’s Legacy held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for a medical screening room housed at Emerson Elementary School in Mesa Public Schools. ATSU students and faculty will use the facility to provide medical screenings to Emerson students on an ongoing basis throughout the school year. Medical screening equipment was donated by Corbin’s Legacy.

Elementary students, school leadership, and district administrators attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony, as did leadership from ATSU and Corbin’s Legacy, Mesa Mayor John Giles, and Councilmember Mark Freeman. More than 600 students at Emerson will benefit from the ongoing screenings. Emerson is a Title I school. Many students may be uninsured or underinsured, and would not otherwise have access to critical health screenings. Corbin’s Legacy will follow up with children who require additional care.

“By providing ongoing health screenings at school, ATSU-SOMA and Corbin’s Legacy are removing barriers to care for children in need,” says Jeffrey Morgan, DO, MA, FACOI, CS, dean of ATSU-SOMA. “ATSU-SOMA is committed to preparing compassionate doctors who will improve access to quality healthcare in underserved communities. This partnership creates practical learning experiences for our medical students and underscores the University’s commitment to the community. This a replicable, scalable, and innovative model for school-based health screenings. We look forward to seeing the impact it will have at Emerson.”
