Health Sciences Fair

Through the annual Community Health and Wellness Fair, more than 1,000 residents of Boyle Heights, Lincoln Heights, and El Sereno have access to flu shots and body-fat analyses, as well as screenings for cholesterol, diabetes, hypertension, and osteoporosis. Participating students, faculty, and staff from the Keck School of Medicine of USC, the USC School of Pharmacy, and the Ostrow School of Dentistry also provide information in both English and Spanish about Alzheimer’s disease, asthma, arthritis, cancer, heartburn, lead-poison prevention, mental health, pain management, and sexual health.
