OHSU students host annual Health Care Equity Fair

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

More than 100 students from across the state ran the Oregon Heath and Science University annual Health Care Equity Fair Sunday.

This was an opportunity for students to get real-world experience; and for others, it was a chance to get their heath checked, regardless of their insurance status.

The Health Care Equity Fair has helped hundreds of Oregonians with unmet health care needs for more than a decade.

People had the opportunity to get a medical checkup, grab some personal hygiene items, or get their teeth, vision and hearing checked.

The health fair also featured student-organized guest speakers and volunteer events intended to raise awareness about disparities in the U.S. health care system.
