University of Iowa Health Fairs Celebrate Health and Wellness

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- University of Iowa faculty and staff are invited to celebrate health and wellness by attending the University of Iowa Health Fairs.

Like last year, the fairs will be held on two different dates and at two locations. Free blood pressure and cholesterol testing as well as health risk assessments will be available at both locations.

The health fair at UI Hospitals and Clinics will take place on Tuesday, Oct. 24 in the Activities Therapy Gym (First Level near elevator J in the Pappajohn Pavilion) from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

On Thursday, November 2, the health fair will take place in the 2nd Floor Ballroom of the Iowa Memorial Union (IMU) from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

University of Iowa Health Fairs provide the opportunity for University of Iowa faculty and staff to learn about health and wellness, the University of Iowa's health care plans, UI Family Care providers, and a variety of other health-related services on campus.

The health fairs are co-sponsored by the UI Hospitals and Clinics Staff Activities Program, UI Wellness, and University of Iowa Health Care.

Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all University of Iowa-sponsored events. If you are a person with a disability who requires an accommodation in order to participate in this program, please call Ruth Hurlburt in advance at 353-2314.

University of Iowa Health Care describes the partnership between the UI College of Medicine and the UI Hospitals and Clinics and the patient care, medical education and research programs and services they provide.
