UT Tyler and UH SNPhA Hunger for Love Health Fair

Bryan Figler, Vice President

On February 23, UH SNPhA and UT Tyler SNPhA participated in the Hunger for Love Health Fair. UT Tyler has participated in this event numerous times and has invited UH SNPhA to collaborate. UH SNPhA helped by organizing a clothing and toiletry drive. The donated items were brought up to UT Tyler for the health fair to be distributed to the homeless patients. 4 UH SNPhA members attended and helped by providing blood glucose and cholesterol screenings and educated patients about smoking cessation. UT Tyler students provided blood pressure and blood glucose screenings. Other organizations were present to provide a spiritual session and hot meals. It was a humbling experience to be able to serve the homeless populations.
