Monday, March 4, 2019 is the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine Day at the State Capitol.
Faculty, students and staff spent the morning providing demonstrations and highlighting what the school has to offer. Passers-by learned about the school’s various departments, and got the chance to check out simulations and exhibits.
Fourth-year medical student, Meg Whelan, helped give free blood pressure checks at the event.
“As a student, it’s really nice to be able to reach out to the people that we serve,” Whelan said. “West Virginia is full of absolutely wonderful people and it’s great to be able to provide this opportunity for the wonderful people in the state.”
The event highlighted programs, like the WVSOM Center for Rural and Community Health, which helps provide opioid tool kits to many different counties throughout the state.
