Pharmacy students from the University of Hawaii at Hilo will be conducting a free Health Screening and Fair for the residents of Miloli`i and their families Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

This will be the third year for the service provided by students attending the Daniel K. Inouye College of Pharmacy.

The event to be held at the Miloli`i Community Center will include blood-pressure, blood-sugar and cholesterol screenings and brown-bag medication reviews (participants are asked to bring non-refrigerated medications, and in their original packaging);.

The students will also provide diet, lifestyle and health information as well as food “and fun,” event organizers said.

The students represent Phi Delta Chi, a professional pharmacy fraternity with more than 43,000 pharmacists and student members nationwide.
