University of Pikeville-Kentucky College of Osteopathic Medicine (KYCOM) students and faculty recently participated in a health fair at East Ridge High School providing health screenings, eye exams, blood pressure and blood glucose checks and osteopathic manipulative treatment to patients.

“The greatest thing about this is that we are able to help the people in our community while also fostering the education of those who are training at the Kentucky College of Osteopathic Medicine,” said Joe Kingery, D.O., CPE, FAAFP, associate professor of education at KYCOM.

Insurance information was also available from KYNect as well as some of Kentucky’s Medicaid programs including Anthem, WellCare and Passport. The Appalachian College of Pharmacy conducted health screenings and the Kentucky Blood Center blood mobile was onsite for blood donations. Mammograms were provided by King’s Daughters Medical Center and the fair was sponsored by Anthem BlueCross BlueShield Medicaid.

“In keeping with the mission of the Kentucky College of Osteopathic Medicine, we are focusing on the health of our community and doing so by partnering with several other entities to bring multiple resources to those in need,” said Kingery.
