A Health & Wellness Fair will be held at Northern Essex Community College’s Lawrence campus on Monday, October 17, from 9 a.m. to noon. The fair will highlight the more than two dozen health care programs available at NECC as well as universal health topics such as sleeplessness and stress.

Free and open to the public, the fair will be held in the atrium of the Dimitry Building on the college’s Lawrence Campus, 45 Franklin Street.

Rite Aid will provide flu shots. Bring your health insurance card.

Everyone attending is eligible for free raffles.

Student and faculty representatives from 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.

“This fair is open to anyone who may be considering a career in health care as well as anyone with an interest in medical topics,” said Linda Comeau, assistant director of iHealth@NECC.
