Bryant & Stratton’s Health Fair and Open House

Community

Bryant & Stratton College is hosting a community health fair as well as an open house Wednesday, June 19 from 3 p.m-6 p.m. The health fair is open to the public and is intended to teach community members about the healthcare programs the college offers.

Free healthcare screenings will be available at the fair by a variety of departments from Bryant & Stratton.

Medical assisting faculty will be hosting blood pressure screenings and nutritional counseling, and the physical therapy department will be doing balance screenings.

The occupational therapy assistant program will be conducting screenings with a dynamometer to look at hand-grip strength. According to physical therapist assistant and program director Kirsten Nielsen, research has now found a link between hand-grip strength and cardiovascular health.

In addition to the health fair, current students and faculty will be holding an open house for people interested in the college and its programs.

Bryant & Stratton student April Williams admits that her physical assistance program is challenging but it has been a great experience and there’s a lot of one-on-one student-teacher communication.

The health fair and open house will take place June 19 from 3 p.m.-6 p.m. at the downtown campus located on James Street. For more information on Bryant & Stratton College, visit bryantstratton.edu.
