For Immediate Release

The University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo Daniel K. Inouye College of Pharmacy presents its fifth annual Health Fair on Saturday, October 12 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Prince Kuhio Plaza.

There will be live demos, entertainment, education booths, free giveaways and a keiki poster contest. There also will be a “brown-bag” station in the health screening area where people are encouraged to bring their non-refrigerated medications for review.

Other community organizations will also offer activities, including Alzheimer's Association, Bay Clinic, Civil Defense, Hawaiʻi Senior Medicare Patrol, HMSA, Hawaiʻi Island HIV/AIDS Foundation, and R. Weinstein Pharmaceuticals and Medical Supplies.

“National American Pharmacists Month is celebrated annually during October, so we would like to invite the community to help us recognize the value of our profession by coming to the mall and meeting our students,” said Forrest Batz, assistant professor in the Department of Pharmacy Practice who will be one of the faculty members helping students at the Health Fair.

The event is sponsored in part by a grant from the National Association of Chain Drug Stores Foundation (NACDF).
