ICOM Hosts Second Annual Community Health Fair

The Idaho College of Osteopathic Medicine (ICOM) hosted its second annual community health fair on Saturday, March 5, at its Meridian-based campus. Participants were able to obtain health education, meet area providers and enjoy an afternoon of wellness.

Organized by ICOM’s Community Outreach Committee and Student Government Association, participants received a complimentary physical exam that included blood pressure and heart rate screenings. Hearing and eye exams were also offered, as well as osteopathic manipulations. Additionally, Two Step CPR (hands-only) training was also offered. 

“The health fair is important to the community because it allows a time where all aspects of health can be met all in one area,” said Bridget Ourada, a second-year medical student at ICOM and organizer of the health fair. “Not only did participants receive physical check-ups, but we also offered ways to continue care with insurance resources and places in the area that are able to help. We wanted everyone to meet the wonderful providers that the Treasure Valley has to offer.”

The Saint Alphonsus Mobile Mammography Bus was also on-site, with health care providers providing digital mammography and clinical breast exams in a comfortable and convenient setting.
