This Saturday, students and faculty from CU’s Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences will participate in the seventh annual KEZW Veteran’s Fair, one of the state’s largest resource events for veterans.
Often times, veterans come back from oversees and don’t know what benefits they’re entitled to or the types of assistance and resources available to them. This fair offers local veterans the opportunity to get their questions answered by authorities from most military departments, including county veteran affairs offices, retiree affairs and more.
“The fair offers an invaluable service to the men and women who’ve served our country,” said Randy Knutsen, a clinical instructor at CU’s Skaggs School of Pharmacy. “It’s a great way for us to get out and serve our community.”
Folks from the pharmacy school will be on hand Saturday to offer advice about medications and conduct blood pressure tests and bone density screenings for those interested.
“I think this event is important, because it not only helps our veterans, but also encourages CU pharmacy students to get out and put their knowledge to the test,” said P3 student, James Mitchell. “It helps us create meaningful relationships within the community and learn to communicate with folks from all over the city.”
The fair runs from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Hudson Gardens, located at 6115 South Santa Fe Drive, Littleton. The event is free and open to the public. For more information on the Studio 1430 Veterans Fair on Saturday, Oct. 3, 2015, and the businesses that will be present, visit the website.
