Student nurses to hold screening clinic May 2
The Student Nurses Association at Fitchburg State University will host a health screening and promotion clinic on Wednesday, May 2, outside the Hammond Campus Center. The event, running from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., will include more than 20 nursing students offering information about healthier lifestyles. The event is open to the public.
“The health screening and promotion clinic is a way for nursing students to really put their knowledge and skills to practice,” said Michael Mielniczek, vice president of the Student Nurses Association. “We nursing students love to learn, but we love to help even more.”
There will be tables set up for screenings, information, healthy food options and items for attendees to take home and help them live healthier lives.
“Nursing students have a duty to promote and teach healthier lifestyles to the population around us,” Mielniczek said. College students deal with sleep, stress, and other health problems, and the association is looking to promote safe and healthy choices for students and faculty.
