Kaiser Permanente Grant Makes March 9 Clinic Possible

Feb 28, 2013

University of the Pacific students, faculty and other volunteers are offering a comprehensive community health clinic that is expected to help 750 Stockton residents, all due to a Kaiser Permanente grant.

The grant of a little less than $74,000 was awarded by Kaiser Permanente in late October at the annual Pacific Appreciation Luncheon where university leaders honor philanthropists who give to Pacific's endowment, scholarships and the Pacific Fund.

The money will fund the clinic 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. March 9 at the Chan Family Health Sciences Learning Center and Clinics at 757 Brookside Road in Stockton.

The free services will be provided by students, faculty and other volunteers associated with Thomas J. Long School of Pharmacy and Health Sciences and Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry. Those free services include:

Anemia screening; blood pressure screening; BMI screening; bone mineral density; cholesterol screening; combined CV education; diabetes screening; drug take back; falls prevention; immunizations; Medicare part d assistance; medication therapy management; medication use safety training; memory decline screening; Ni-ox/asthma; oximetry; peak flow and pulse
Pharma$ist; dental services (limited to 50 participants); and preventive dental services (limited to 125 participants.)

Free bus rides to the clinic are being provided by the San Joaquin Regional Transit District. Tell the bus driver you are attending the clinic.
