Project Spotlight

The HOPE Project (Health Outreach and Practical Education)

Vmed Wellness Initiative (VWI) is a student initiative to conduct diabetes screening and education events in the Charlottesville community. The Jefferson Trust grant will empower a collaboration between VWI and the Center for Global Health’s Student Advisory Board to expand the geographical scope of activities by conducting screenings in other central Virginian counties, with a goal of conducting at least two diabetes and hypertension screening events ever year in nearby counties such as Louisa, Buckingham, and Orange that have a significant cardiovascular disease burden.
