UIS Hosts Wellness Day
Today's Wellness Day at UIS provided free services and screenings, along with increased awareness about health issues impacting the community.
The fair encouraged everyone to become active, eat healthier, and live a healthier life.
Chronic health conditions and their associated costs are on the rise throughout the country, and the UIS Wellness Day was a great place to jump-start healthy choices.
"They need tests to know where they stand," oncology facilitator Diana Weyhenmeyer said. "Prevention. I'm very much into prevention and wellness, and if your tests are normal, you're in good shape."
Free games and fun activities were also at today's fair. A total of 40 organizations participated.
The annual event is held in conjunction with National Public Health Week.
