Students to host free community health fair

The student clinics at the Medical College of Georgia, in conjunction with the Dental College of Georgia and the College of Allied Health Sciences, are hosting the annual Asciación Latina de Servicos del CSRA (ALAS) free health fair from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 7 in the family medicine clinic in Medical Office Building One, 1447 Harper St.

A variety of services will be provided, including adult and pediatric doctor visits, prescription refill renewal, pap smears, HIV tests/PrEP, dermatology screening, school screening, vision screening, dental exams and cleanings, mental health screening, and women’s health screenings.

To better reach the uninsured community, faculty and health care providers are sharing this opportunity with their patients who may benefit from these free services.

All services are supported by the student-led pediatric clinic, free mental health clinic, women’s clinic and Clinica Latina.

ALAS is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life and promoting the wellbeing of Hispanics and other underserved populations in the CSRA.
