Regional Conference Community Service Project

  1. Career and Science Fair: Instituto del Progreso Latino, 2570 S. Blue Island Ave., 11am-2pmThis volunteer opportunity is designed to inspire young students to
    pursue careers in the health care field. There will be representatives
    from various health programs as well as clinical skills, college
    application and professionalism workshops. For our younger students we
    will have fun science experiments and health activities to encourage
    interest in this area of their schooling. One of the ways we can
    influence diversity in the health care field is by giving students the
    information they need to become successful in any career they choose.
  2. Mini Health Fair: Lincoln Methodist Church 2242 S. Damen Ave, 12:30-2:30 pmThis community is greatly in need of access to quality health care.
    After Sunday service, volunteers will provide basic health screening
    including: blood pressure, blood glucose and vision testing.
    Volunteers will also provide health and nutrition education to
    increase awareness of the health issues that exist within the Latino
    communities of Chicago.

    Rides will be available from Rush to the volunteer sites. Pre-med
    students welcome to volunteer. No clinical experience required.
