USI students enrolled in Health Services courses in the College of Nursing and Health Professions are collaborating for the fourth annual Health and Wellness Fair at Harwood Career Preparatory High School, 3013 N. First Avenue, Evansville, on Friday, April 12, 2019 – offering not only resources for health and wellness but a glimpse into college life and health careers.
The USI disciplines involved include Health Services, Health Informatics, Public Health, Nursing and Food and Nutrition.
The USI students have contacted vendors for the fair, including St. Vincent, Vanderburgh County Health Department and several community health organizations.
Students representing various health professions majors will be involved as exhibitors, offering services such as blood pressure checks, nutrition advice and stress reduction.
Harwood Career Preparatory High School seeks to provide a non-traditional learning environment for students in grades 9-12 who may have experienced challenges in traditional schools. Students are referred to Harwood by their district school and have the opportunity to graduate with a Core 40 Diploma as well as college credits and workplace certifications. Harwood prepares students for college and careers by creating an innovative, differentiated place of learning. With smaller class sizes, each student has the opportunity for more one-on-one attention, career path and job skills training … and thanks to the USI students, they will also receive tips for healthy living.
