On Midwestern University’s Downers Grove Campus, the Asian Health Association (composed of students from the Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine, College of Dental Medicine – Illinois, and Chicago College of Pharmacy programs) have partnered with the Midwest Asian Health Association to empower members of the Chicago Chinatown community with knowledge about their health.
Every month, students from the Asian Health Association host an event to provide low-cost labs, osteoporosis and blood pressure screenings, and general health education for Chicago Chinatown residents. Additionally, dental medicine students hand out free dental hygiene supplies such as floss, mouthwash, toothbrushes, and informational pamphlets about dental care.
Led by advisor Sheila Wang, Pharm.D., BCPS, AQ-ID, Associate Professor, Pharmacy Practice, on September 24, nearly 50 local residents participated and received free educational materials printed in both Chinese and English, as well as benefited from important preventative healthcare measures such as blood pressure screenings.
