Community Health Fair to offer free screenings, flu shots Sept. 19

Health Fair CASE COMM DAY 2014As a part of Case for Community Day, Case Western Reserve University will present a free Community Health Fair.

The fair will take place Friday, Sept. 19,  from 1 to 3 p.m. in Adelbert Gymnasium.

At the fair, community members can receive free health screenings, including dental, blood pressure, glucose, cholesterol and more. In addition to health screenings, free flu shots will be made available to all participants.

This event is proudly sponsored in collaboration with University Hospitals, Cleveland Clinic and Anthem Blue Cross/Blue Shield.

Case for Community Day was established in 2002 as a day of service that gives Case Western Reserve University staff, faculty, students and alumni the occasion to:

  • Provide Case Western Reserve University an opportunity to connect with our community neighbors,
  • Foster a sense of collaboration among staff, faculty, students, and alumni, as it stewards and strengthens the university’s relationship to City of Cleveland and nearby neighborhoods, and
  • Demonstrate the synergy between higher education and service to society.

In 2014, the Case for Community Day program will donate more than 2,000 hours of community service throughout greater University Circle.

The health fair brings together students, faculty and staff from our School of Medicine, Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing and the School of Dental Medicine for an interprofessional day of service. Student teams will work side by side with faculty advisers to provide free health screenings to any community members.
