Free TB Testing Scheduled Next Week

Thanks to a very welcome donation from CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield and CVS, Everybody Wins! DC is providing opportunities during the week of December 11 for returning and new mentors to get a TB test free of charge.

To participate, mentors need to complete their Everybody Wins DC application , if you have not done so already, and then head to the EWDC office (525 School Street SW, Suite 203) for both the skin test and the test reading.

Skin Test dates:

Monday, December 11: 2:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. Skin test administered
Tuesday, December 12: 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. Skin test administered

Test Reading and Results date:
Thursday, December 14: 12:30 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. Skin test reading and results

All volunteers in DC Public Schools, including parents, must complete the DCPS Background Clearance process before volunteer services can begin. With TB test results in hand–along with a completed DCPS application–mentors have what’s needed to report to DCPS Central Office for fingerprinting services.

We know it has been challenging to find the time to complete this process and are so grateful our mentors are doing their part to ensure the safety of all students and fellow mentors in our program.

EWDC is also extraordinarily grateful to CareFirst and CVS for their generous gifts to make this TB clinic possible.
