The pre-medicine/pre-dentistry (PMPD) Club are teaming up with the Office of Service, Justice, and Missions at PUC and the St. Helena Hospital to put on the 1st Annual Health Fair to offer many free services to students and community members. As leaders in our community and pre-professional students, we hope this event will create an opportunity for students to get firsthand experience in their field of interest while bettering the campus and local community.
What services are provided at the PMPD Health Fair?
We are offering a variety of services, including dental screenings, medical testing, therapy dogs, a smoothie bike, vision screenings, outdoor yoga, massage therapy, healthy food demonstrations, and more. We are so thankful and thrilled to say all services are free!
When is the PMPD Health Fair?
This coming Sunday, May 21, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The fair will take place at the same time as the Angwin Flea Market and is open to PUC students as well as the surrounding communities of St. Helena, Yountville, and Calistoga.
Why should I volunteer or attend?
Why shouldn’t you volunteer? Think about it—when was the last time you saw your doctor or dentist? As a student myself, I know it is always easy to put off those maintenance appointments which are so essential to our long term health and well-being. How can we take care of others if we don’t make time to take care of ourselves first? Volunteer to help make a positive change in someone’s life and attend the fair to get some of your basic medical, dental, vision exams (and more) done for FREE.
As an incentive, all volunteers will be given free lunch from 12-1 p.m. All PUC students participating in the fair will be given attendance credit for visiting four booths and obtaining stamps from each one. Students who submit their stamp sheets to us at the end of the fair will be eligible to potentially win two $25 Amazon gift cards.
