UW-River Falls Hosts April Health and Wellness Fair

UW-River Falls will hold a health fair on April 14, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Karges Gymnasium. The event is free and open to the public. It will feature health related testing, demonstrations, live music and door prizes. The goal of the health fair is to encourage a commitment to healthy lifestyles on the UW-RF campus and the River Falls community.

The event includes cholesterol screening, hearing screening, blood pressure testing, blood sugar testing, massage, fitness assessments including body composition, tobacco quit kits, pet therapy, aromatherapy and other health related education.

Visitors to the health fair will gain insights on becoming aware of their own personal health status while obtaining knowledge on a variety of health-related topics. People can also learn about health-related resources and initiatives available on the UW-RF campus and in the River Falls community.

UW-RF students will be assisting in the promotion and administration of the health fair. Their efforts will enhance the success of the event and provide them means to gather professional experience.

The event admission and majority of the testing services are free; some of the companies will be selling products for a minimal cost.
