MERIDIAN—Learn about dozens of Idaho State University health professions programs, tour the Meridian campus, and get a flu shot at Health Science Experience Night and the Pharmacy Open House, Tuesday, Oct. 24, 5-7:30 p.m. Both events are at the ISU–Meridian Health Science Center, 1311 E. Central Drive.
“Health Science Experience Night is a wonderful opportunity for Treasure Valley high school students to engage with students and faculty in the health professions. They experience hands-on what professionals do in the field each day,” said ISU-Meridian Enrollment Services Director Ali Crane.
Attendees can visit with faculty from Meridian and Pocatello, participate in medical demonstrations, and tour the state-of-the art L.S. and Aline Skaggs Treasure Valley Anatomy and Physiology Laboratories, equipped with 3D and virtual technology. All students are eligible for door prizes, ISU gear and promotional items.
The first 10 flu shots are free at the Pharmacy Open House. After that, they’ll cost approximately $33 for participants who don’t have health insurance. Cash or check is accepted.
From 6:30-7:30 p.m., pharmacy students and faculty will host a panel discussion for people interested in applying to ISU’s Doctor of Pharmacy program, the only one in the state.
Student pharmacists will also conduct free blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol checks and provide education about diabetes, heart health, prescription drug abuse and poison prevention.
