Public Health Student Association

DOC Health Fairs

In 2000, the University of Miami’s Miller School of Medicine formed the Department of Community Service(DOCS). This program provides screening, preventive services, referrals, and specialty care to some of the most underserved populations in South Florida. Medical students are also provided with an environment that allows for hands-on service learning opportunities. There are currently 9 health fairs each year in Broward, Miami-Dade, and Monroe Counties.
The Department of Public Health Sciences students have partnered with the DOCS program to provide service to the local community. Members educate individuals on the importance of screening and healthy behavior modifications. Some topics we educate on include: cervical cancer, hypertension, alcohol abuse, melanoma, and diabetes mellitus.
