Chattanooga State Hosts Health Expo

Wednesday, April 25, 2012

The Community Health Institute at Chattanooga State will host the “5th Annual Health, Fun, and Wellness Expo” Friday, April 27 from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. in the Health Science Center located on the Amnicola campus. This is a large comprehensive health fair that is open to the public offering numerous free health screenings and exhibits from area health professionals and wellness-related organizations. Parking is free and easily accessible.

In addition, the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office will conduct “Operation Medicine Cabinet”, a drug take back program where the public may turn in unwanted medications for proper disposal to help keep medications out of the hands of children and our water supply.

Those wishing to turn in medications can simply drive through the drop off circle without having to leave their vehicle. Pharmacists will also be available to answer questions.

For further details, contact Dr. Nancy Watts at Nancy.Watts@Chattanoogastate.edu. For information about Chattanooga State Community College and its educational programs, call the Chattanooga State information hotline at 697-4404 or toll free at 866/547-3733.
