Chattanooga State’s Community Health Institute opens its doors to the campus and community from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. on Friday for its free annual Health and Wellness Fair in the Health Science Center on the main campus located at 4501 Amnicola Hwy.
Promoting health and wellness to students, employees, and the greater Chattanooga area is the number one reason for holding this annual event. Exhibits by local health professionals who offer free giveaways, important health-related information, services, food sampling and provide one-on-one consultations is an added bonus for participants.
More than 36 vendors will be participating in the fair representing organizations that include pharmacies, allergy clinics, disease prevention and care, hospitals, chiropractors, health insurance, podiatry, home health care and Hamilton County health and law enforcement agencies. Chair massages provided by Massage Therapy program students, registration for upcoming free dental care for children as well as appointments at the Dental Clinic, and blood pressure checks by Medical Assistant students will all be offered free to attendees.
The Hamilton County Sheriff’s office will conduct “Operation Medicine Cabinet” a drug take-back program where anyone can safely turn in unwanted medications for proper legal disposal. Chattanooga Cares sponsors the 2018 event.
