The Pacific University College of Optometry and College of Health Professions, in collaboration with community partners, will host a mobile health fair and open house on Saturday, March 4, in honor of the inauguration of President Jenny Coyle.
The interprofessional educational community event will include on-site patient care services open to the community, including:
- Visit the EyeVan for vision screenings, patient education, and appointment scheduling with the Pacific EyeClinics
- Visit the Smile Care Everywhere Van for tours and patient education
- Visit mobile health units from ¡Salud! and Virginia Garcia Memorial Health Center — in partnership with Pacific's School of Physician Assistant Studies — for blood pressure, cholesterol/lipid and blood sugar screenings.
- Centro Cultural will be on site to provide resource information for the community.
The health fair will be open to the public in Pacific's Parking Lot C at the corner of 19th Avenue and Cedar Street in Forest Grove from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. March 4. No appointments or registration is required, and screenings are free. All ages are welcome, though children under 15 will require a parent/guardian present for consent.
The Community Health Fair will be held in Pacific's Forest Grove Campus Parking Lot C, at the corner of Pacific Avenue and Cedar Street. Driving directions to campus and an interactive campus map, as well as additional guest information for Inauguration Week, are available online.
Parking will be available in Lot C, as well as across the street in Lot O. Street parking is available around campus. Please follow posted parking regulations. Use caution, as guests will be visiting the mobile health units in the parking lots and families will be touring the nearby Early Learning Community at the same time.
