Tar Wars is a tobacco education and prevention program sponsored by the American Academy of Family Physicians to instruct junior high school youth in the dangers of smoking. This curriculum has been adopted by our program as the primary health intervention program that our residency will participate in within our community.
Sports Physicals and School Immunizations is residency sponsored annual event whereby children and adolescents in the community receive their required sports physicals and immunizations prior to participation in school sports. SPASIC occurs on two separate weekends every August.
Retiree Health Fair
The Retiree Health Fair is held every fall (usually October) and consists of a multi-disciplinary "fair" of preventive medicine for military retirees and dependents. The residency always participates in providing either services and/or health care related materials on a variety of topics ranging from cholesterol screening to medication reconciliation.
Relay for Life
The Relay for Life is held every spring (usually in May) and consists of a 12 hour "relay" at a local high school track in which money is raised for the fight against cancer. For this completely voluntary event, the residency usually fields at least one team of 10-15 individuals to raise money and participate in the walk.
The Special Olympics is the annual sports related weekend sponsored by the March of Dimes for athletes with a variety of physical and/or mental handicaps. The residency usually provides medical support for this event.
