The Confucius Classroom at the Dominica State College (DSC) recently hosted a free health fair in collaboration with the Faculty of Health Sciences. Four specialist doctors, including cardiologist Dr. WANG Xianbao, urologist Dr. XIANG Qi, ophthalmologist Dr. LIU Qiong, and anesthesiologist Dr.SONG Fuhu were present to provide medical services for the college community. Approximately 60 members of the DSC community took advantage of this opportunity over the two-hour stay.
The most heavily requested service from the specialists was eye exams from the ophthalmologist. Several people also consulted with the pain physician on their chronic pain, and others consulted the cardiologist regarding hypertension and heart disease. Blood pressure checks were also a commonly administered service. Overall, it was a successful health fair that attendees were appreciative of and spoke highly of their professionalism and medical expertise.
“We are so thankful to have had this opportunity to collaborate with such an impressive medical team,” said Dean Trudy Christian of the Confucius Classroom. “This health fair was an invaluable experience for our students and staff as they had direct access to some of the best medical minds in our country.”
The Confucius Classroom is looking forward to further collaborating with this medical team to bring another successful health fair back to DSC in the future. They especially appreciated Dean Casey’s help in providing student nurses to assist in pre-screening all attendees and for their warm reception of the China Medical Team.
DSC is dedicated to providing its community with access to quality healthcare through events like these free health fairs. With its success, we can look forward to even more collaborations between DSC’s Confucius Classroom and leading medical teams in our nation.
