Health Screening and Fair Set for Miloli`i Saturday
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.
Natalie Savona, a second-year pharmacy student from the Class of 2013, is coordinating the event alongside chapter President Janine Masri, a third-year pharmacy student from the Class of 2014.
The event will be managed under the supervision of Forrest Batz, a professional pharmacist and member of the Department of Pharmacy Practice. Other faculty will also take part including Aaron Jacobs, Phi Delta Chi faculty adviser.
