Free Health Fair This Saturday at the Calcutta YMCA

Kent State University at East Liverpool’s Nursing Department and East Liverpool City Hospital are planning a Health Fair to be held this Saturday from 8 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the YMCA in Calcutta. Senior nursing students in Professor Deborah Hager’s class developed eight stations for the health fair. The health stations were identified through community surveys of health issues in our area during their Community Health Nursing course. First and second level nursing students will provide education on Atrial Fibrillation, Diabetes, Heart Disease, Hypertension, Stroke, Renal Disease, COPD and CHF. They will also have two blood pressure screening tables available. The health fair is free and open to the public.
