WITC students bring health to campus

March 16, 2012

From newrichmond-news.com: “WITC students bring health to campus” — Medical assistant and nursing students who plan to graduate this spring from Wisconsin Indianhead Technical College-New Richmond campus will demonstrate their knowledge at a Health Fair on Wednesday, March 28, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The public is welcome to attend.

Students and a variety of community agencies will offer health information, including some screenings such as vision, hearing, lung capacity and blood pressure. (Tests for cholesterol and blood sugar levels are available only to WITC students.)

Nursing students will provide information about health topics, such as organ donation, immunizations, alternative health care options, and how to tell the difference between cold and flu symptoms.

Participating agencies from outside WITC include The Centre, Red Cross, Vitality Initiative, AKF Martial Arts, St. Croix County Public Health and others.

Last year’s follow-up survey from the event indicated the majority of people who attended the event ranked it very good to excellent.

Questions about the 2012 WITC Health Fair should go to Sara Yaron, RN, at WITC-New Richmond, at 715-246-6561, ext. 4259.

WITC serves the educational and career needs of more than 25,000 residents of Northwestern Wisconsin each year. With multiple campuses, WITC offers career-focused associate degree programs, technical diplomas, short-term certificates, customized training, and a wide array of courses for personal or career enrichment.
