Wright State medical students to host inaugural Community Health Fair

Residents of Dayton and surrounding communities can receive free health screenings at the inaugural Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine Community Health Fair on Saturday, May 6, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Hope Center, 1816 Harvard Blvd. in Dayton.

This student-run event is open to all ages and will give Dayton-area residents the opportunity to take charge of their health through free screenings, including blood pressure, cholesterol, blood glucose, hemoglobin A1C checks and many more.

Participants should register at wright.edu/bsom-health-fair-23.

“As medical students at Boonshoft School of Medicine, we have decided to come together to create an annual community health fair for the people of Dayton,” said Rita Kamoua, a medical student at the Boonshoft School of Medicine and event marketing chair. “As future physicians, commitment to service is important to us. With this event we hope to collaborate with our community, to learn from the citizens as well as serve them.”

In addition to screenings, there will also be a Zumba instructor, a Kid’s Zone, music and snacks. Participants can enter a raffle to win prizes, including tickets to the Ohio State Fair, Fitbit watches and grocery store gift cards.
