Fresno State nursing students provide free healthcare services for underserved communities

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Nursing students at Fresno State provided access to free health care for under-served Central Valley communities.

The event called Health on Wheels took place at the Fresno Fairgrounds from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Students gave residents free immunizations, diabetes and blood pressure screenings and health assessments.

"The purpose is to serve communities that are under-served but it is also to serve students they get hands-on training that they don't normally get," said Nursing Professor Kathleen Rindohl.

Nearly 100 people received services from the event.
