LAWRENCE Two high school-based clinics run by the University of Kansas Medical Center will benefit from the 2012 Proud To Be A Jayhawk tailgating fundraiser.
Donations to the BullDoc Free Clinic program will support health centers at Wyandotte High School and Northwest Middle School in Kansas City, Kan.
BullDoc will receive revenue from the distribution of KU football programs at home games.
Developed and run by medical school students, BullDoc offers a variety of free health care services to students who may not otherwise see a doctor. KU medical students get real-life experience examining patients, diagnosing conditions and caring for those with limited access to health care — all with supervision by family medicine physicians. The BullDoc clinics serve a high school population exclusively.
More than $50,000 has been raised through the Proud To Be A Jayhawk tailgating fundraiser since the promotion began in 2001.
The KU football season begins Saturday at Memorial Stadium in Lawrence against South Dakota State University.
