Interdisciplinary Service Learning: Una Vida Sana! and Richmond's Hispanic Community

In 2009, I helped start a new interdisciplinary service learning program named "Una Vida Sana!" (A Healthy Life).  This program targets cardio-metabolic disease screenings (diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol) within Richmond's Hispanic Community.

We have now started analyzing some of the data from student participation and our patient data.  We reported on the early data analysis at the recent Society of Teachers of Family Medicine (STFM) Conference on Medical Student Education two weeks ago.  Below is the presentation from that conference (apologies that the formatting is a little off after the upload):
