Campus Plans Annual Community Event
Jun 23, 2014
The Pikeville Campus is in process of planning their 7th Annual Healthy Fun Fair for Thursday, July 24. During the event, the college provides free medical services and consultations to the community. Last year there were approximately 1,000 people in attendance and that number is expected to grow this year.
Along with free medical services, the students also get to participate in a mock disaster. The mock disaster requires hours of planning and preparation. Recently, several members of the first responder community were present for the planning luncheon. The timing of the event, marketing and improvements from last year were a few of topics on the agenda. Those in attendance were Bill Baker and Dwayne Osborne with AirEvac Lifeteam; Gilbert Storey with Thelka Fire Department; Cyrus Hess with Appalachian First Response; Chief Jason Ray of the Coal Run City Police; and Wilma Storey, director of health care education at the Pikeville Campus. Each department has a part to play in the response to the mock disaster and this luncheon helped determine the roles that each would play.
Tammy Riley, campus director said, “The Pikeville Campus hopes, with the help of these agencies, that this year’s event will be the best one on record.”
