RU Caring Hosts Annual Back to School Health Fair

Rush University’s voluntary and student-led RU Caring program hosted its seventh annual Back to School Health Fair earlier this month at Whitney M. Young Magnet High School on Chicago’s West Side. Volunteers from Rush performed a record 260 physical exams; examined, cleaned and applied fluoride and sealants to more than 100 children; administered electrocardiograms to 25 patients; provided numerous immunizations, as well as hearing screenings; and distributed more than 400 backpacks filled with school supplies.

Here are a few photos from the event:
