Saint Louis University

SLU medical students volunteer at the Health Resource Center.

Children who are 18 and younger can receive free physical exams and vaccinations at a back-to-school health fair from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 18, at Loyola Academy, 3851 Washington Ave.

The services will be provided by Saint Louis University's Health Resource Center (HRC), a free clinic operated by medical school students under the guidance of SLU doctors.

"Vaccinations and physical examinations are required by schools and we want to make it easy for students to get the medical services they need," said Matthew De Cuffa, a SLU medical school student on the HRC leadership team. "It's part of our commitment to improve access to health care."

SLU medical students also will offer tips on healthy eating and free gifts to children. Please arrive early in order to be seen because appointments are not accepted.
