Come learn about a variety of health conditions and ways to live a healthier life.


      DOVER, Del. – Delaware State University’s Student Affairs Health Committee and Delaware Center for Health Promotion at DSU will host a Health Fair from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 24, in the Martin Luther King Student Center on campus.                                                  About 30 exhibitors will participate, including health organizations such as American Cancer Society, Bayhealth Medical Center, Pro Physical Therapy, Delmarva Rural Ministries, Delaware Quitline, Delaware’s Screening for Life, Christiana Care Health System and Kent County Counseling.   DSU health-related departments and student groups will also have exhibits. The University’s nursing students will give blood pressure tests and nutrition students will offer BMI screenings. The will also be health screenings for other health issues such as diabetes, osteoporosis and skin cancer.      The staff of the Wellness and Recreation Center (WRC), a state-of-the-art fitness facility located on campus, will also perform hourly demonstrations of fitness classes, such as Zuumba. Attendees will also have the opportunity to tour the WRC facility.   “We’re hoping to raise awareness campus-wide of the importance of taking care of your health,” said Michelle Fisher, director of Student Health Services. “This is part of the student wellness program that the campus Health Committee recently launched called ‘Healthy Hornets on the Move,’ which is supported in part by AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals.”   The Delaware Center for Health Promotion (DCHP), which recently relocated to DSU, is co-sponsoring the Feb. 24 Health Fair. Marianne Carter, director of the center, is excited that DSU is opening this event to the general public.    “It’s far better to prevent disease than it is to treat it after the fact,” Carter said. “Attendees will have access to lots of information focusing on prevention.”   The public is invited to join the campus community in this free event.   Free parking is available in Lot #1 adjacent to and north of the University’s main gate entrance.
