Getting annual physicals is an important way to protect one’s health and detect any health problems early. On July 25 and 26, DMU students, clinicians and other volunteers made that task a lot more accessible for central Iowa school kids. In the University’s Olsen Center, 87 students kindergarten through 12th grade were screened and treated by 191 DMU students, 15 faculty and one graduate of the College of Osteopathic Medicine.
Patients included several members of the North High School football team and a family from Honduras, a child of which is a leukemia survivor, who hadn’t received health care for many years.
