Blood and Bone Marrow Drives Incorporated
Logo: Don't Be a Fool About Your Health

CONCORD — On Tuesday April 1st, NHTI Health Services is sponsoring the 19th Annual NHTI Wellness Fair along with the help of volunteer nursing students, from 11 am to 2 pm in the Dr. Goldie Crocker Wellness Center.  In keeping with the date, this year’s theme is “Don’t Be a Fool About Your Health.”  Around 50 student and community participants will be on hand with demonstrations, health screenings, wellness education, exhibits and more.  Additionally, there will be free healthy refreshments, door prizes and background music.  Admission is free and the community is invited.

For the first time, this year’s fair incorporates a Bone Marrow Drive.  Fair-goers are being encouraged to “get swabbed for Sarah,” a young mother with two children who is in need of a bone marrow transplant – and who happens to be the daughter of the longtime (1990-2013) director of NHTI’s Learning Center.  There will also be a Red Cross Blood Drive held from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm in the Multi-purpose Room (room 102) in the adjacent Student Center.

For further information please contact Sue Dal Pra, NHTI Health Services, 271-6484 ext 4149 or sdalpra@ccsnh.edu.
