Public Invited to NECC Health and Wellness Fair, Oct. 19
What do phlebotomists, flu shots and a reiki master have in common? All of them will be found at Northern Essex Community College’s Health Profession: Health and Wellness Fair on Monday, October 19, from 9 a.m. until noon in the atrium of the Dimitry Building, 45 Franklin St., Lawrence.
This event, which is free and open to the public, will showcase the health programs offered at NECC as well as educate visitors on health issues affecting society. Student and faculty representatives from all NECC health programs, including iHealth@NECC, will be available to discuss the value of each academic health program as well as health issues related to that program’s topic. Some of the health topics include bone fractures; privacy and security of electronic health records; cataracts; the link between oral disease and overall health; the art of medical coding; how to get a good night’s sleep for college students; and much more.
A highlight of the fair will be the tours of the new Dr. Ibrahim El-Hefni Health & Technology Center, 416 Common St. in Lawrence. Visitors will be able to see the state-of-the-art equipment available to NECC health students.
A reiki master will be available to demonstrate this alternative therapy; and Rite Aid will be administering flu shots to individuals who present health insurance cards.
All individuals who visit all tables and complete their ‘raffle cards’ will be entered in raffles.
