Hundreds of visitors and more than 45 outside community organizations took part in the sixth annual Community Health Fair at the John A. Burns School of Medicine on January 7.

The fair was born under the vision of medical students who believed that a student-sponsored health fair would help the medical school achieve its mission to train competent and compassionate physicians to serve the unique needs of Hawai’i, according to 2011 event co-chair Aaron Hoo.

“The health fair is entirely student-run, mainly by the first year students, but involves students from all four years,” said Hoo, himself a first-year student. “This event provides health-related organizations community exposure and a chance to educate medical students, faculty and staff, as well as the general public about their services to the community.”
