Jackson Library on the UNC Greensboro campus.

Come for the educational material. Stay for the DJ, raffles, and food trucks.

UNC Greensboro School of Nursing students will host a health fair on the lawn in front of the Walter Clinton Jackson Library from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 26. All UNCG students, faculty, and staff members are invited to attend.

Nursing students will provide free blood pressure screenings and educate those in attendance on health-related topics that impact UNCG’s campus and the larger Greensboro community. The topics include:

  • Body dysmorphia and image
  • Food insecurity
  • Mental health awareness
  • Nutrition
  • Physical health and exercise
  • Safe alcohol practices and alcohol addiction
  • Sexual health
  • Stress management
  • Vaccinations

The health fair will include speakers from Cone Health’s Regional Center for Infectious Diseases and the Piedmont Health Services and Sickle Cell Agency, as well as UNCG’s Recipe for Success and its Counseling and Psychological Services.

Nursing students will collect non-perishable food items that can be donated to the Spartan Open Pantry. In addition, attendees will be able to enter a raffle of their choice after visiting at least five of the educational booths at the health fair.

Two food trucks, Boho Berries and Havana Flavor, will be selling food at the health fair. Smoothie King and Clutch Coffee will also be there to provide smoothies and coffee to students.

If it rains, the health fair will move into room 120 of the Nursing and Instructional Building.
