TAMUCC Holds Health Fair at Dugan Wellness Center

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Living a healthy lifestyle is important all year long, but during Hispanic Heritage Month, the nursing school at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi decided to put extra emphasis on that fact.

On Tuesday, they held a health fair at the Dugan Wellness Center. Nursing students provided free health screenings and tests, including blood sugar, cholesterol and blood pressure checks.

"It's a great way to bring together the different groups within our school," TAMUCC nursing student Amanda Garza said. "To bring awareness to common illnesses that can be prevented, and through the nursing department we give students a chance to give back to the community by volunteering to do hours. And it's a great way to meet new people and get involved in the community."

"A lot of times you workout and eat right and you try to be healthy," TAMUCC nursing student Seethu Thomas said. "I don't know. Doing something like this actually kind of encourages you; tells you that you are doing it right. That you are on track the way you should be."

Nearly a hundred people took advantage of Tuesday's health fair.
