Students from Auburn University’s Harrison School of Pharmacy will hold a free health fair in front of the Walker Building on the Thach Concourse from 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m., Saturday, prior to Auburn’s football game against Georgia.

The students will offer some basic health screenings, such as blood pressure and blood glucose checks, as well as information and counseling on several health conditions, including diabetes, stroke, smoking cessation, HIV awareness and immunizations. Free flu shots will also be available.

“As a student pharmacist, there is nothing more exciting than the potential to help your community,” said Glady’s Tucker Heard, president of the Harrison School of Pharmacy Student Council. “We are all looking forward to giving back to the Auburn community that has embraced and supported us. We learn so much in the Walker Building and there is nothing more exhilarating than the potential to disseminate that knowledge.

“As a patient, the healthcare member you have the greatest access to is your pharmacist,” she added. “We can provide guidance and recommendations and are only a phone call or visit away. There is no need to set an appointment. We can help if you find yourself having questions regarding your medications, your illnesses and provide information on the best way to manage it all.”
