Learn about dozens of Idaho State University health professions programs, tour the new anatomy and physiology laboratories, and get a flu shot at Health Science Experience Night and the Pharmacy Open House, Tuesday, Oct. 27, 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Both events are at the ISU–Meridian Health Science Center, 1311 E. Central Drive.

“Health Science Experience Night is a wonderful opportunity for Treasure Valley high school students to delve into the health professions. They experience hands-on what professionals do in the field each day,” said ISU-Meridian Enrollment Services Director Ali Crane.

Attendees will have the opportunity to visit with ISU faculty from Pocatello and Meridian, participate in medical demonstrations, and tour the new L.S. and Aline Skaggs Treasure Valley Anatomy and Physiology Laboratories, equipped with 3D technology to explore the structure and function of the human body.

High school seniors who attend the event can enter a drawing for a free iPad. Winning the tablet is contingent upon attending ISU. All students are eligible for door prizes.

The first 25 flu shots are free at the Pharmacy Open House. After that, they cost $31.99 each if you don’t have health insurance. Cash or check will be accepted.

Student pharmacists will also conduct free blood pressure checks and provide education about diabetes, heart health, prescription drug abuse and poison prevention.

The College of Pharmacy will host a chili cook-off. Tickets cost $5 each, and proceeds will support pharmacy outreach projects.
