Chattanooga State Hosts 7th Annual Community Health, Fun & Wellness Expo Plus “Operation Medicine Cabinet”

Thursday, May 1, 2014

The Community Health Institute at Chattanooga State will host the “7th Annual Health, Fun, and Wellness Expo” Friday, May 2, from 9:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. in the Health Science Center located on the Amnicola campus.

This is a 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 accessible. Presenting partners include CVS Pharmacy, Walgreen’s, Hamilton County Sherriff’s Department, SETDD, Chattem, Tennessee Partners for Health, Blush Magazine, Blood Assurance, and Chattanooga State’s Community Health Institute.

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.

As a new addition to the Expo, Chattanooga State will sponsor a blood drive to honor the son of a former student who was recently injured in a serious motorcycle accident last month.

For information regarding sponsorship or exhibitor registration, please contact Dr. Nancy Watts at Nancy.Watts@Chattanoogastate.edu.
