ALBANY, GA (WALB) – The Minority Association of Pre-Med Students treated the community to their first health fair.

They held it in the Hyper Gym at Albany State University.

Students with an interest in medicine help conduct tests under the supervision of doctors. It was all free.

Attendees were screened diabetes, HIV, and received information about the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

"It's a wonderful thing when you have kids who are really excited and want to do something to reach out and help others, and often all the need is a little bit of direction to show them how to do it and make it happen," said Dr. Londa Walden, Community Health Fair Organizer.

The students also collected money for the Red Cross Haiti relief efforts.

It was hosted by the Griffin-Jordan Minority Assoc. of Pre-Med Students.
