MHLP's Dr. Conner Co-Sponsors Community Health Improvement and Initiative Project

Dr. Kyaien Conner from the Department of Mental Health Law and Policy partnered with USF Health and the Tampa Heights Community Center to sponsor the CHIIP (Community Health Improvement Initiative Project). This project jump started with a community health fair which took place Saturday April 8th at the Tampa Heights Community Center. Community members who attended this fair received formal health assessments, medical screenings, and had the opportunity to gain exposure to a variety of health promoting activities and events. Community members who attended this event will participate in a 6-week long health and nutrition program and will be re-assessed at the end of the 6 weeks to examine physiological and behavioral health changes. Eight student volunteers from CBCS attended the health fair with Dr. Conner and assisted in conducting the health assessments for the community.
