PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Hundreds of uninsured and underinsured Oregonians gathered in downtown Portland on Sunday to take part in a free health screening fair.

OHSU student volunteers provided free medical and dental services.

Participants also received referrals to local clinics for follow-up appointments, as well as addiction and mental health treatment.

Volunteers welcomed the opportunity to reach out and help participants take a proactive approach to their own health.

Understanding the importance of companionship, the OSU College of Veterinary Medicine also offered exams, vaccination vouchers and pet care information.
