Westside Health Fair partnership with Eskenazi Health, and each year we have over 300 community members take part.
The Westside Health Fair is one of the largest service projects at the IU School of Medicine, involving dozens of medical students, who provide free health care screenings and education to residents on Indianapolis’ near west side. The Westside Health Fair takes place each October and is a fantastic opportunity for Student Interest Groups to provide health education and screenings germane to group’s interest.
Terre Haute Community Health Fair is an event that invites leaders of the Terre Haute community to gather to educate area residents about their health and how they can improve it. The Terre Haute Community Health Fair began in 2005 and has been held as an annual event that is now organized by the 2nd year medical students at IUSM Terre Haute.
The health fair targets area residents; however, there are no boundaries when it comes to attendees. In past years, we have helped the young and old, poor and wealthy, as well as the insured and uninsured. Many programs and services are offered at the health fair. In addition to the information about local organizations and services, we offer educational exhibits about personal health, fitness classes, massage therapy, and free health screenings. Past screenings have included vision, hearing, blood sugar, body mass index, and blood pressure. Popular educational exhibits consist of diabetes, nutrition, and osteoporosis as well as fun children's activities to get children of the community excited about health and wellness.
The 2015 Terre Haute Community Health Fair will be held at the Terre Haute Boys and Girls Club (924 N. 13th St, Terre Haute, IN 47807) on Saturday, October 24, 2015 from 10:30am to 2:30 pm.
