Health Fair hosted by USC School of Pharmacy's Alpha Iota Pi

Location

St. Anthony Catholic Church

1901 S. San Gabriel Blvd.
San Gabriel , CA United States

Alpha Iota Pi, USC School of Pharmacy's co-ed professional fraternity, will be holding a free to the public health fair at St. Anthony Parish in San Gabriel, CA on February 16th, 2014 from 10AM to 2PM. There will be 60-70 pharmacy student volunteers and 10-15 licensed pharmacists providing health services.  Student volunteers will rotate around various booths throughout the day, providing influenza vaccinations, health screenings, and educational information to the public under the supervision of licensed pharmacists. Through their activities, they will develop their communication, vaccination, and screening skills.To demonstrate the need for free health services in the city of San Gabriel, the following statistical data was taken from the 1999 U.S. census.  San Gabriel has a population of 41,000 people with an average per capita income of $16,807 and 16% of people living below poverty. 70% of the population speaks a language other than English at home. Many of these people cannot afford healthcare and do not take proper care of their health.

For many participants who have reduced access to primary care, health fairs like these are an important resource for them to receive health care and health education. This is why we want to reach as many people as we can this year by ensuring that people know about the health fair and the free screening services being provided.
