SENIOR DENTAL STUDENT Eddie So (below right) was among dental faculty and students providing free screenings during the Neighborhood Health and Fun Fair held Sunday, April 18. Dental screenings were just one of the more than a dozen free health services provided for 250 neighbors of the University Park Campus and families from Murchison Street Elementary School, located near the Health Sciences Campus.

Partners included USC’s Division of Business Affairs, the Office of Civic and Community Relations, the USC Family of Five Schools, plus Murchison Elementary and 32nd Street Market, along with numerous other local businesses and organizations.
