The annual Health Fair is the College of Pharmacy’s largest community outreach event. Members of the public are invited to visit educational health care booths and obtain health screenings, including blood pressure, blood sugar and body mass index (BMI) tests. Vaccinations provided by CVS Pharmacy will be available.

Distributed throughout the mall will be booths featuring community organizations, live demonstrations and entertainment. New this year is a “Keiki Korner,” designed to educate and excite kids about science. Youngsters can learn how to "compound" silly putty and ice cream, and make their own Cartesian Diver, a new booth that demonstrates the principle of buoyancy.

Participating organizations include AlohaCare, American Cancer Society, American Red Cross Disaster Preparedness, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Big Island Substance Abuse Council, Bone Marrow Registry, Center for the Study of Active Volcanoes, Hawai’i Benefit Solutions, Hawai’i Island HIV/AIDS Foundtion, Hilo Vet Center, HMSA, Hope Services Hawai’i, Hui Malama Ola Na Oiwi, MasterCare, NAMI-National Alliance of Mental Illness-Big Island, Partners in Developments, Pillow Case Project, SHARP, SMP Hawai’i-State Executive Office on Aging, The Arc of Hilo, UH Hilo Doctor of Nursing Practice Program and United Healthcare.

The public can follow the health fair on Instagram (@healthfairdkicp) and Facebook (@DKICPHealthfair) to keep updated with news and for the chance to  win prizes.
