Pharmacy Students Provide Health Services to the Community

March 12, 2014

College of Pharmacy students continually reach out to citizens across Iowa by providing a variety of health services, from immunizations to glucose screenings, heartburn education to medication counseling and disposal.

These experiences can often provide services to those who need it most, and also provide students with real-world experience that they will utilize on a daily basis once they’ve completed their pharmacy education.

Recently, students were on-hand at the Iowa State Capitol to provide health screenings to legislators and staff. They also coordinated a health fair at Iowa City’s Chinese Church and participated in a campus-wide student health event.
