Members of the UC Riverside School of Medicine Asian Pacific American Medical Student Association (APAMSA) volunteered at the annual Reach Out Community Health Fair in Jurupa Valley on Saturday, October 14th. Over 80 patients were screened at the health fair, most of whom did not have health insurance. The patient population was primarily from minority groups. The medical students worked alongside physicians from Riverside University Health System and we assisted in taking patient histories and conducting physical exams. Services provided at the health fair included screening for blood glucose and hemoglobin A1c levels, physical exams, health insurance enrollment, and referrals to follow-up services.
