Andrews Offers SuperHealth Fair This Weekend

If you are challenged when it comes to health care access, or simply haven’t had a chance to get some of the basic screenings you know you are overdue for, your friends at Andrews University’s chapter of Enactus invites you to their SuperHealth Fair this Sunday.

The entire community is invited to participate in the SuperHealth Fair coming this Sunday, March 12th from 11am to 2pm at the Ruth Murdoch Elementary School on the campus of Andrews University.

Everybody who attends will enjoy free health screenings coordinated by the Departments of Nursing, Speech Language & Audiology and by University Health & Wellness from Andrews University. Also available are free massages, cooking demonstrations and consultations with Brite Dental and Great Lakes Eye Care. Additionally, there is a raffle for Apple Valley gift cards and a Fitbit tracking device. The event is family-friendly with activities for children as well.

The SuperHealth Fair is the culmination of Enactus, a group of students who collaborate with business and educational leaders, placing action to their knowledge and executing projects that serve community needs. Sarah Henry, Enactus member, fondly remembers the opportunity that Enactus had to engage and educate first graders about health principles with the acronym CREATION.

Sarah says, “This January we were able to share the same CREATION principles with seventh and eighth graders, while still regularly educating the first graders.” She adds, “As we close out these sessions we hope to gather the community around building lasting health practices into their everyday lives.”

This event is free and open to the public. Any questions can be posed to RMES at rmes@andrews.edu or by phone at 269-471-3225.
