Looking to promote health and wellness as one of its goals today, the Student Health Services is presenting a fair where prizes and free screenings would be the doctor’s order.
After last year’s turnout of more than 1,000 people, the Student Health Services is expecting about 2,000 people to attend the 13th annual Health Fair event, said Laura Hill, the Health Fair coordinator.
The event, open to the public, will be held at the Health Services Building and on the Breezeway of the Student Services Building from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. today.
Some of the USF organizations and programs taking part of the event are the Advocacy Program, the Audiology Clinic, Campus Recreation Center, the Career Center, Communication Disorders and Sciences, the Counseling Center, SAFE team, Student Public Health Association and Volunteer USF, among others.
According to Hill, people can expect about 45 tables filled with information on health issues in addition to a variety of health screenings ranging from free massages, osteoporosis, hearing, vision, blood pressure, glucose and hemoglobin tests that will be available to those who attend the fair.
The fair, which is sponsored by Student Health Services, will also offer prizes such as gym memberships, restaurant gift certificates, Bush Gardens and Lowry Park Zoo tickets, hotel stays, Florida Aquarium tickets and USF memorabilia.
