NMC Nursing Club Invites Community to Free Health Fair on Saturday (February 11, 2014)

As part of its effort to increase awareness about healthy lifestyle habits and practices, the Northern Marianas College’s Nursing Club is inviting members in the community to the 5th Annual Health Fair on Saturday, February 15, 2014, from 8:00am to 3:00pm at the Multi- Purpose Center in Susupe. Entrance to the Fair is free.

The Health Fair is supported with the assistance from the CNMI Area Health Education Center (AHEC), Bridge Capital LLC, Star Water Inc., and other NMC and community volunteers.

Health Fair activities will run from 8:00am until 3:00pm and will also feature a 5k Walk starting at 6:00am. The first 20 participants who finish the 5k Walk will also receive t-shirt prizes. Entrance to the Health Fair and the 5k Walk is free.

In addition to the exhibits and information booths, there will be presentations from organizations like NMC Cooperative Research Extension and Educational Services (NMC-CREES). Other activities include a CPR demonstration by the American Red Cross, a Boxersize class by Trench Tech, and a Zumba class by Gold’s Gym.

Those who attend the Health Fair can also take advantage of free health services including free flu immunizations, screenings for blood pressure and blood glucose levels, as well as free HIV and STD testing and counseling. Participants will also be able to purchase healthy drinks and snacks from Tropical Blendz, and try samples from Subway and Foremost.

There will also be an obstacle course designed specifically for young children from age 5 through 12. The obstacle course is aimed to help youth improve their athletic abilities while having fun with other participants.

Participants will also have a chance to win raffle prizes like free dental cleanings from Seventh Day Adventist Dental Clinic, Pacific Islands Club waterpark passes, gas vouchers at Shell from IP&E, and other prizes from other companies in the community. Funds raised will be donated to the NMC’s Nursing Club to purchase lancets and other supplies used for community service projects.
