African American Health Expo is tomorrow! Open to all

 

UNTHSC’s mission to create healthier communities means we’re here to help families improve their health awareness.

One way we do this every year is providing health screenings, such as blood pressure checks, and other services at the African American Health Expo. This year’s event will be 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the gym of Tarrant County College South Campus, 5301 Campus Drive, Fort Worth, TX 76119.

Though the Expo focuses on issues of special concern to African Americans, it’s open to all. This year’s theme is “Health Disparities: From Awareness to Action.” UNTHSC students, staff and faculty from multiple departments are volunteering.

Save lives by donating blood on May 16

 

You can save as many as three lives by donating blood at our next drive, Thursday, May 16, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. All donors will get a T-shirt and a coupon for a freebie from Chick-fil-A.
Look for the Carter BloodCare bus in front of the MET. You can make an appointment in advance, or just walk in.
“Each unit can save or enhance up to three lives,” said Colleen Horan, Field Recruitment Consultant for Carter BloodCare.
We host blood drives six times a year. Help us continue this tradition of creating a healthier community with our blood drives, which are open to all students, faculty, staff and the public.
Most people who are in good general health can donate. To check your eligibility, please visit this site.
