Getting a healthy start, Learning from the pros

March 7, 2019

During the month of February, our third year nursing students from Epidemiology and Illness Prevention held their Health Promotion Poster Fair! The Poster Fair educates the college community on preventable public health issues.

From learning about the importance of driving safely, taking care and caution in the sun, and the importance of body mechanics, faculty and students are now one step closer to taking care of themselves. Education on breast health, prevention of STDs such as Chlamydia, and vaccine-preventable illnesses like measles provided an excellent source of information to those who stopped by and visited the booths. Games, riddles, and questions helped engage interest of those walking by.

Thank you to everyone who stopped by to support our students’ learning as they support all of us through their health promotion efforts.
