Drexel College of Nursing and Health Professions students administered health screenings for 106 seniors at the Golden Life Senior Fair at the Columbia North YMCA on October 14. As part of the Life Improvement Festival & Expo (L.I.F.E) Series, over 250 seniors came out for health screenings, as well as the many other services offered, like demonstrations in yoga, dancing, and tai chi.
The College of Nursing and Health Professions sent 22 students to the fair from the Nursing and Nutrition Sciences Departments, as well as two nursing faculty and two professional staff members. The students provided health screenings and education for blood pressure and blood glucose, eye exams, nutritional wellness resources, and body mass index readings.
The event was presented by the Office of the City Council President Darrell L. Clarke, the North City Congress, and the Spring Garden Multi Services Center.
