UIS Wellness Day 2013

UIS Campus Health Services, in conjunction with UIS Rec Sports and Springfield Health Check, is hosting Wellness Day 2013 at TRAC on April 3 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The annual Wellness Day is hosted for the entire community, individuals of all ages are welcome, and there will be activities for children.

The goal of the Wellness Day is to provide free services and to increase awareness on health issues, which impact the well-being of our community.

The event offers each individual the opportunity to get their health numbers (bio-metrics), and to explore a range of options to live a healthier life.

Some of the providers and activities include nutrition education on portion control, gluten free ideas, spinal check, as well as blood typing and a blood drive.
