University of Findlay College of Pharmacy students were given the opportunity to help the community by offering free health screenings, which took place on Saturday, Feb. 19 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. in UF’s Davis Street Building. The partnership between Findlay’s College of Pharmacy, the Soroptimist International Club of Hancock County, and Hancock Public Health made this event possible.
During the event, students were able to perform blood pressure screenings and medication reviews with community members. Students also helped the Soroptimist Club distribute hygiene items such as shampoo, conditioner, body soap, hand soap, hand sanitizer, toilet paper, hydrogen peroxide, and other necessities to those in need. Meanwhile, Hancock Public Health was offering tours of their Mobile Health Clinic, which was parked on the north side of the building.
“This service-learning event was an excellent way for our students to experience hands-on community outreach, work the Soroptimist Club and Hancock Public Health, and create awareness for better health,” said Tonya Dauterman, clinical associate professor of pharmacy practice, associate dean of external affairs and advocacy, and chair of experiential education.
This community event will continue to take place at UF’s Davis Street Building on the third Saturday of every month.
