LAFENE'S ANNUAL HEALTH FAIR OFFERS PRIZES, INFORMATION AND FLU SHOTS

MANHATTAN -- Lafene Health Center's 20th annual campus health fair will be 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 3, in the K-State Student Union courtyard at Kansas State University.

This year's fair, "Don't Let Your Health Walk The Plank," is co-sponsored by SHAC, the Student Health Advisory Committee. The goal of the fair is to increase student awareness of health services available at K-State.

"This is a great opportunity for students to come and learn about Lafene services in a relaxed atmosphere," said Theresa Doyle, chair of the Student Health Advisory Committee.

Students can meet the physicians, nurses and other professional staff at Lafene. They also can learn about health issues pertinent to them, and have the opportunity to ask health-related questions.

"The annual health fair is an excellent opportunity for the university community to receive health information in a fun atmosphere, as well as become more aware of the health care services and programs available at Lafene," said Lannie Zweimiller, director of the health center.

Students attending the health fair can win prizes, including gift certificates to local stores. The fair's information tables also will have giveaways and prizes for students.

In addition, flu shots will be available to all K-State students, faculty, staff and their family members who are 18 years or older. Cost of the vaccine is $15 for students, and $20 for faculty, staff and family members.
