Ventanilla de Salud in Liberal

On July 26th through the 27th Ventanilla de Salud held a health fair in Liberal, Kansas. This year, KUMC medical students, nursing, and nutrition students from Allied Health were able to attend and help out at the fair.

Services that were offered at the health fair include health screenings, dermascan, and fluoride treatments. Breast cancer, HIV/AIDS, and nutritional education information was also available.

For the first time in Ventanilla de Salud health fairs, focus groups for teens on reproductive education were conducted. Dr. Romina Barral organized and conducted these focus groups; topics that were discussed include birth control and teen pregnancy. Any questions they had about sex were also addressed. The purpose of this is to gauge how much adolescents know, what their thoughts were on the topics, and to disseminate knowledge. This new addition was well received by parents and their teens.

 

We’d like to thank all the volunteers, medical students, and students from allied health for making this health fair a success. Our next Ventanilla de Salud event is October 25th and 26th in Wichita, KS. If you are interested in volunteering please fill out the following registration form:
