More than 50 health agencies, vendors and representatives convened on Oct. 15 in the Betty R. Tipton Room of the Student Center for the 21st Annual Health, Wellness and Benefits Expo. The theme this year was "Balancing Your Mind, Body and Soul." The program included demonstrations, performances and free health screenings throughout the day.
Free chair massages, free HIV and STD testing, blood pressure and cholesterol screenings, body fat analysis and free health food samples were some of the offerings at this year's event. Among the day's activities were a variety of demonstrations, descriptions and performances including yoga; accupuncture; massage therapy; and CPR training offered by Windham Hospital's Emergency Medical Services. In addition, representatives were on hand with information about retirement, finances, health insurance and cancer prevention.
The Health Expo was sponsored by Student Health Services and the Office of Human Resources.
