About

The Illini Medical Screening Society (IMSS) is a registered student organization at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign devoted to preventing disease through the process of medical screening and health care education. IMSS provides the low-income and uninsured citizens of Champaign County a free medical screening service where individuals at risk for heart disease are referred to follow-up at local free health clinics. Our tests are commonly used by physicians to diagnose Diabetes, Hypertension, and Hyperlipidemia, all of which can further complicate coronary heart disease, kidney and retinal damage as well as indicate future risk of heart attack and stroke. All screenings are established and operated by undergraduate pre-health students, funded by Provena Covenant Medical Center and student fundraisers, and supervised by licensed healthcare professionals.
