Pitt Community College to host public health fair with free screenings


Pitt Community College will host a public health fair on Wednesday, April 10 at its main campus in Winterville.

The 4th Annual PCC Health Fair will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on April 10, in the Craig F. Goess Student Center’s Davenport Multipurpose Room, located on campus at 1986 Pitt Tech Road.

The Health Fair will feature informational displays, blood pressure, cholesterol and glucose screenings, dental, vision and pulse oximetry screenings, a sleep apnea information booth, and hands-only CPR demonstrations.

At the Health Fair, the Red Cross Bloodmobile will conduct a blood drive, the North Carolina Highway Patrol will welcome visitors to the “Booze It and Lose It” simulator, and the Pitt County Sheriff’s Department will operate a medicine drop for anyone wanting to properly dispose of old prescription medications.

PCC Health Sciences Dean Donna Neal said,

“It’s a chance for the community to gain valuable health information and see our efforts to develop skilled health care professionals. It also serves as an opportunity for our students to practice some of the things they’ve learned in their programs of study as they interact with attendees.”

PCC Health Sciences students will facilitate many of the fair’s activities, with support from faculty.
