Students from The Burrell College of Osteopathic Medicine’s (BCOM) Student Osteopathic Surgical Association (SOSA) will host a free health fair and clinic on the BCOM Campus at 3501 Arrowhead Drive on Saturday, December 2 from 10am to 2pm.
This event is open to the public and is particularly geared toward indigent and uninsured members of the community who may need basic healthcare screenings. Other BCOM student groups including the American Women’s Medical Association, the Geriatrics Society, the Student Osteopathic Internal Medicine Association, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, the Student American Academy of Osteopathy, and the American College of Osteopathic Pediatricians will be joining the SOSA students in providing full health screenings under the guidance of seven licensed attending physicians who will also be onsite for the event. Separate clinics for men, women, children, and geriatric patients will be set up in the BCOM classrooms and information and resources will be available on dental health, hygiene, health insurance opportunities, and other health-related concerns.
The health screenings are all being provided at no cost to community members as this event is funded through a humanitarian grant provided by the American Osteopathic Foundation.
