Journal of Interprofessional Practice and Collaboration


The Spring Into Health community health fair was an interprofessional education (IPE) event

hosted by the University of Louisiana Monroe (ULM) College of Pharmacy's Christian

Pharmacists Fellowship International (CPFI) organization. The event included the participation

of several student pharmacy groups, as well as the ULM nursing, dental hygiene, medical

laboratory science, and health studies departments. Every organization involved in the health fair

provided either a health screening or a health education topic to the community of Ouachita

Parish, which is located in northeastern Louisiana. The event was hosted at the Louisiana

Purchase Gardens and Zoo in Monroe, Louisiana, and took place on March 30, 2019. This health fair provided community outreach to the patrons of Ouachita parish and also served as an opportunity for interprofessional teamwork amongst many disciplines of health professional students from the local university.
