The Pre-Health and Volunteer Fair is the largest fair of the sort in the Pacific
Northwest, hosted at Oregon's largest university. The fair will be promoted
extensively to the students at Portland State. PSU has an enrollment of nearly
30,000 students, including thousands of students who plan on entering healthcare-
related programs. In addition, students from other local colleges and universities
will be invited to attend as well, including: University of Portland, Reed College,
Lewis and Clark College, Pacific University, George Fox University, Willamette
University, Portland Community College, and Mt. Hood Community College.
The Fair is an opportunity for representatives from your school/program to meet
with students interested in careers in the health sciences. In previous years, guests
from over seventy schools from across the country have attended, representing the
entire range of health care and affiliated-science education. With your help, students
will be able to access a wealth of information and advice regarding educational
programs, admissions requirements, and/or health-care volunteer opportunities.
The PSU Fair is part of a series of fairs taking place in Oregon and Southwest
Washington during the same week, with each school's fair on a different day.
The April 23rd Portland Fair will run from 10:00am until 2:00pm. A registration
fee of $140.00 is required from all schools or governmental agencies attending,
which will cover the cost of brunch, refreshments, advertising, and parking for all
representatives. Each organization will be provided with a 3x6ft. table and two
chairs. Stand up table displays are limited to 6x2ft. Due to space limitations, we are
unable to accommodate displays larger than 6x2ft.
