To promote healthy lifestyle habits and practices, the Northern Marianas College’s Nursing Club is inviting the public to the 8th Annual Health Fair on Saturday, March 11, 2017, from 8am to 12pm at the Pedro P. Tenorio Multi-Purpose Center.
The health fair is supported with the assistance of the Area Health Education Center and other NMC and community volunteers.
Health fair activities will run from 8am until 12pm, but will also feature a 5K Walk starting at 6am. The first 10 participants who finish the 5K Walk will also receive a T-shirt prize and a raffle ticket. Entrance to the health fair and the 5K Walk is free for all.
In addition to the exhibits, there will be games and information booths, screenings for blood pressure, blood glucose, and HIV/STD testing and counseling. There will also be various presentations and fitness demonstrations. Funds raised will be donated to the NMC’s Nursing Club to purchase lancets and other supplies used for community sevice 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 Maritoni Raganot. “This is also a wonderful opportunity to expose yourself and your children to the different health resources available in the CNMI.”
