LAFENE HEALTH CENTER'S 19TH ANNUAL CAMPUS HEALTH FAIR NOV. 4 AT K-STATE
MANHATTAN -- Lafene Health Center's 19th annual campus health fair, "Rock Your Health," will be 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 4, at Kansas State University. The health fair will be in the courtyard at the K-State Student Union.
The fair is co-sponsored by K-State's Student Health Advisory Committee. The group's goal is to increase student awareness of health services available at K-State, according to Rachel Cunningham, senior in marketing and mass communications, Oskaloosa, and committee chair.
"Students can come and learn about services while getting some fun freebies," Cunningham said.
"The annual Lafene health fair is an excellent opportunity for the university community to receive health information in a fun-filled atmosphere as well as become more aware of the health care services and programs available at Lafene," said Lannie Zweimiller, director of Lafene Health Center.
At the fair, students can meet the physicians, nurses and other professional staff from Lafene. They also can learn about health issues pertinent to them and have the opportunity to ask health-related questions outside of the health center environment.
Students attending the fair will have the opportunity to win prizes such as K-State apparel, gift certificates and more. Information tables also will have giveaways and prizes for students, said Theresa Doyle, health educator at Lafene.
Information about seasonal and H1N1 influenza will be available at the fair; while vaccines are expected to be at Lafene this fall, the exact schedule is not known.
