UE Nursing Seniors’ Health Fair Rescheduled for January 16
Posted: Monday, December 9, 2013
A community health fair hosted by the University of Evansville’s senior nursing class has been rescheduled due to inclement weather over the weekend.
The fair will now take place from 6-8 p.m. Thursday, January 16, at the New Haven campus of Keck Church, 2573 N. Kentucky Ave. The event, originally scheduled for Saturday, December 7, is free and open to the public.
The health fair will include information and activities such as depression screenings, tooth-brushing education, blood pressure checks, and recipes for inexpensive, healthy meals that can be prepared from items commonly found in food pantries. Lunch will be provided, and attendees will be eligible to win door prizes such as George Foreman grills and slow cookers.
“The senior nursing students’ annual health promotion project is a great way for them to make an impact in the community while preparing for their careers as nurses,” said Amy Hall, White Family Endowed Professor and chair of the Dunigan Family Department of Nursing and Health Sciences at UE. “This project has helped the students develop community assessment and public health skills, as well as leadership and teamwork abilities.”
