NYIT Celebrates 2013 National Health Professions Week

health fair

NYIT students participated in a daily health fair as part of National Health Professions Week from Nov. 4 to 8. They provided on-the-go health and wellness services at the Student Activity Center and various academic buildings and administrative offices in Old Westbury. B. Suzy Diggle, R.N., instructor of nursing, organized their efforts.

The "mobile" health fair aimed to reach a wide segment of the NYIT community. "The enthusiasm by students was evident along with those who took advantage of the screenings and educational outreach," said Patricia Chute, Ed.D., dean of the School of Health Professions. "Next year we plan to expand outreach to the Manhattan campus."

Examples of this year's activities include:

  • Students majoring in clinical nutrition and health science discussed healthy snacks and quick meals as well as online nutrition resources.
  • Nursing students hosted "healthy heart care" events and activities sponsored by the Student Nurses Association and American Red Cross Club. They distributed information on STD prevention and contraception, breast and testicular screenings, blood pressure screenings, disaster preparedness, and the NYIT Counseling and Wellness Center.
  • Occupational therapy students gave a presentation on the "Ergonomics for the College Student," supplemented by physical therapy students who performed postural assessments and gave tips on safe exercise at home.
  • Students majoring in physician assistant studies offered information on skin cancer and the importance of physical activity.
