USF to host interactive health fair Thursday

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (ADAMS) – The University of Saint Francis Physical Therapist Assistant (PTA) Program will host an informative/interactive health fair from 12:30 to 2:15 p.m. Feb. 28 in the main hall of the Doermer Family Center for Health Science Education on the USF campus, 2701 Spring St.

The focus of the free fair is to educate the USF community and general public on these health-related topics:

• Caffeine Intake and Emotional Well Being
• The Benefits of Tai Chi
• The Truth Behind CBD Oil
• Natural Remedies to Address Stress
• Sitting is the New Smoking
• The Benefits of Stretching; Let’s Assess Posture
• The Opioid Crisis and Other Health Challenges – Alternative to Drugs.

The 21 second-year PTA students are researching their self-selected topics and preparing educational materials for the community as course requirements for a final part of the PTA curriculum before graduation in May.

The goal of the health fair is to have attendees engage in the interactive learning stations to gain knowledge of ways to improve their health and lifestyles while the students further learn how to teach individuals more about health and wellness.
