Abstract:
Specific Aims: To assess the population that attends The College of Pharmacy’s health fairs and determine which fairs best cater to Tucson communities that benefit the most from free health services. Methods: Data collection occurred throughout two semesters, fall of 2012 and spring of 2013. Information was obtained from screening tools administered at health fairs. Access to insurance, whether patients had previously seen a physician for screened condition, and the amount of referrals were gathered for data analysis. Main Results: Significant differences were found between the health fairs in categories, i.e. patients with/without insurance, had/had not previously seen their physician and were/were not referred. Conclusion: Study results can be used to help in the process of scheduling health fairs for subsequent academic years. A criterion should be generated to make decisions for reconsideration and to better allocate the College’s resources.
