Nursing Students at Mississippi College Host Clinton Health Fair

Mississippi College School of Nursing students are pictured at an event on the Clinton campus in 2018.

Diabetes, breast cancer awareness, lowering blood pressure, and mental health issues will be topics discussed at a Clinton health fair on April 10.

Mississippi College School of Nursing students will help educate the public at the event at the Clinton-Wood Activity Center. It runs from 9 a.m. until noon. The health fair is free and open to the public.

The MC School of Nursing will partner with the City of Clinton to sponsor the annual program titled “Let’s Taco About Health.”

Each of the 34 MC nursing students, all seniors, will be assigned to talk about a specific subject. Nutrition, colon health, elderly abuse, depression, vision screenings, fitness are among other areas they will tackle that Tuesday. Health screenings for blood pressure, weight, BMI and vision are scheduled, too.

Refreshments will be provided.

Employees from Allstate, Humana, Merit Health Central, St. Dominics Hospital, the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson, United Healthcare, and the Clinton Fire Department will attend to share information about their services. There should be plenty of door prizes to give to guests.

MC nursing student Logan Martin and professor Deborah Bolian are helping spread the word. The Clinton health fair is something the students planned for weeks as part of a senior project on the Clinton campus.
