I'On Club Tennis Trifecta Event

On August 14,15 and 16, The I'On Club will host three tennis events to support the MUSC Cares Clinic Team, a volunteer group of medical students, staff and health providers who travel to medically underserved counties in SC. Funds from this weekend will help acquire a van to be used as a mobile vaccination clinic especially for uninsured children in danger of being expelled from school due to a lack of state mandated vaccinations.  Events are open to club members and their guests.  We encourage you to sign up soon, as participation in all events is limited!  Join us to support the MUSC Pediatric mobile vaccination van!

About MUSC CARES Medical Clinic

The CARES Medical Clinic has many ongoing needs for support. A current need is the acquisition of a mobile van to be used for vaccination clinics. This van will operate as part of the CARES Pediatric Prevention Clinic, providing public health outreach and vaccines to uninsured children in danger of being expelled from school due to a lack of vaccinations. The van will enable the clinic’s expansion of public health outreach, with a long-term goal of supporting a more broad immunization initiative.  These vaccinations are routine pediatric vaccines required for public school.   Current clinics are staffed by volunteer staff and medical students.  https://muschealth.org/medical-services/cares/donate
