Health FairCOLUMBUS, Miss. -- The Department of Health and Kinesiology at Mississippi University for Women will host its annual community health fair Thursday, Feb. 13. This event will be held in the Pohl Gym from 8:30 a.m. to noon.

 

“The Community Health Fair is very important for both The W campus and the community,” said Erin Dollar, graduate assistant in the Department of Health and Kinesiology, who is the coordinator for the event.

Participants will have the opportunity to hear from experts in the field about how they can live a healthier lifestyle and achieve their health goals.

This year’s theme is “Renewing Our Resolutions Together.” About 30 wellness and health promotion industry representatives will be present to distribute information.

“Our goal is to express that in order to make resolutions to better your health, you have to be willing to make lifestyle changes,” added Dollar. 

The College of Nursing and Speech-Language Pathology will check blood pressure. The W Speech & Hearing Center will check hearing. The Lions Club will check for glaucoma pressure, visual acuity and will collect used eye glasses and sunglasses. Baptist Memorial Hospital-Golden Triangle will conduct blood pressure, blood sugar, and bone density screenings. North Mississippi Medical Center will offer cholesterol screening.

All participants should wear comfortable clothing. Those who get cholesterol and blood sugar screenings are required to fast after midnight before the fair.

“We are looking forward to working with everyone this year and making resolutions together,” said Dollar.
