The College of Medicine – Tucson will celebrate the Commitment to Underserved People (CUP) program's 40th anniversary on Thursday, Oct. 18. From its modest beginnings 40 years ago, CUP has since evolved into a substantial program involving more than 90 percent of all medical students. Through the program, medical students help provide free medical care to more than 1,000 patients in the Tucson community each year. Participation in CUP helps medical students practice their clinical skills and get involved with the local community. They also learn about impact of socioeconomic status on access to health care by working regularly with the uninsured, homeless, refugees, inmates and other marginalized populations.
Everyone is invited to help celebrate this important milestone. During the Open House, medical students will be showcasing each of their CUP programs, as well as providing tours of their new clinic space inside of College of Medicine – Tucson located at 1501 N. Campbell Ave. Interested attendees are asked to please RSVP for the event at: bit.ly/CUP2018
NOTE: CUP relies heavily on the volunteer services of local health care providers. If you are interested in volunteering with CUP, contact Hildi Williams at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to support CUP monetarily, visit: bit.ly/SupportCUP
