NMC Annual Health Fair on Saturday, April 11 (March, 11, 2015)

To increase awareness about healthy lifestyle habits and practices, the Northern Marianas College’s Nursing Club is inviting all community members to the 6th Annual Health Fair on Saturday, April 11, 2015, from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm at the Multi-Purpose Center.

The Health Fair is supported with the assistance of the College Access Challenge Grant, Area Health Education Center (AHEC), and other NMC and community volunteers.

Health Fair activities will run from 8:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m., but will also feature a 5k Walk starting at 7:00 a.m. 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 for all community members.

In addition to the exhibits, there will be games and information booths, screenings for blood pressure, height and weight, and blood glucose. There will also be various presentations and fitness classes led by Benjamin Jones and Zumba exercises led by the Uncle Ben’s Music and Dance Studio. The American Red Cross will also demonstrate CPR techniques, and the event will also feature a health panel composed of health professionals.

Participants may also purchase one dollar raffle tickets for a chance to win prizes like an 18 hole round of golf for two from Coral Ocean Point Resort Club, gift certificates from Subway and other companies. Funds raised will be donated to the NMC’s Nursing Club to purchase lancets and other supplies used for community service projects.

“Our goal for this Health Fair is to increase awareness and the importance of living a healthier lifestyle by eating the right types of food and becoming more physically active,” said NMC Nursing Club President Maria Atrero. “This is also a wonderful opportunity to expose yourself and your children to the different health resources available in the CNMI.”
