UIS Health & Wellness Fair offers free screenings and fun activities
WHO: Everyone is invited: individuals of all ages – with activities for children. The event is sponsored by UIS Health Services and developed in conjunction with a collaboration of providers through Springfield Health Check. A list of providers and activities is attached.
WHEN: Wednesday, April 9, 2014 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
WHERE: The Recreation and Athletic Center (TRAC) at UIS
WHY: Americans are experiencing the impact of poor health choices. Rates of chronic health conditions and their associated costs are on the rise. Obesity contributes to a list of other chronic diseases including diabetes and heart disease. Many of these conditions are modifiable through healthy eating, increased activity and preventive check-ups. This UIS Wellness Day offers each individual the opportunity to get their health numbers (bio-metrics), and to explore a range of options to live a healthier life. Healthier life-styles happen one choice at a time. Attending the UIS Wellness Day is a great choice to jump-start those healthy choices.
UIS Health Services provides care for the UIS student body and health education for the entire campus. Springfield Health Check provides multi-level Workplace Wellness services for area businesses.
