“The Health Fair is a great way for students to take ownership of the important skills that they are learning,” Foy Ann said.

The Salter School’s New Bedford Campus hosted a free Health Fair on November 11th from 10am-2pm and 5:30pm to 7:30pm. The school invited anyone from the New Bedford community to stop by for free health care testing.

At the Health Fair, The Salter School students who are studying to become pharmacy technicians and professional medical assistants practiced the skills they learned in class. The Salter School instructors were on-sight helping students test the visitors’ blood sugar, read hemoglobin counts, and fill out patient information forms. The pharmacy technician students filled the prescriptions that the visitors provided.

Foy Ann Plohr, the Director of the Salter School, said that the Health Fair provided a great opportunity for the students to use their skills to help the community. “The Health Fair is a great way for students to take ownership of the important skills that they are learning,” Foy Ann said.
