Six students from University of the Sciences partnered with Hahnemann University Hospital to provide health promotional information at the the River City Festival in Penn Treaty Park (Philadelphia) on Saturday, October 1, 2011. The Fourth Annual River City Festival was sponsored by the Fishtown Neighbors Association (http://rivercityfestival.org/), and offered great food, fun, crafts, and music.

The fourth professional year students in the doctor of pharmacy program used clever themes to invite festival attendees to learn about bone health, high blood pressure, and stroke prevention. Participants answered questions and rolled the dice to play games such as the Diabetes Knowledge Tour, Heart Smart Jeopardy, and the Race to Poison Safety Game. They also played TouchDown! to learn about immunizations such as the influenza vaccine. Assistant Professor Dr. Grace Earl accompanied the students and marked the second year of participation at the event.
