(Bluefield)—Bluefield State College Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) Students will be actively involved in providing a "healthy dose" of information and services to area residents during the Community Health Fair, 10 a.m.-4 p.m., April 14 at Mercer Mall.

In addition to the blood sugar and blood pressure screenings, BSC ADN students will make available information on topics that include health promotion, cancer, dementia and depression, caregiver burnout, ATV safety, guy safety, arthritis, hypertension, diabetes, obesity, and eye health.

"Through the Community Health Fair, the Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) program at Bluefield State College gives back to the community and shares information regarding health disparities in our region," observed Sandra Wynn, BSC ADN Director. "This is a great partnership that Bluefield State College and Mercer Mall started last year and we look forward to many years of community service through events such as this."

The early screenings offered by the BSC nursing students during the Community Health Fair are an effective way to prevent health complications and help individuals enjoy a healthier life.
