Students from the University of Kansas Medical Center (KUMC) worked a booth at the Kansas State Fair in Hutchinson last weekend, giving free blood pressure and other screenings.
In this video, second-year medical student Aniesa Slack talks to Janet West of the Kiowa County Media Center about the Rural Medicine Interest Group. “Most of us who are in this organization want to go back and help rural communities,” Slack says. As she points out, many people who live in rural areas might not get to town to visit their physicians very often, so the fair provided a great place for a screening.
In this video, Allen Rawitch, PhD, Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs and Dean of Graduate Studies, talks to West about how KUMC is helping to educate the rural doctors of the future.
