The annual health fair offers football fans an easy way to get valuable health information and screenings as they trek across UF campus to the stadium. Tables at the J. Wayne Reitz Union, staffed by pharmacy students working together with healthcare professionals, will provide free cholesterol testing and diabetes screening. This year’s event will also include new health resources for smoking and alcohol cessation, as well as exercise and fitness. Beginning four hours before Gators kick-off, the annual event is sponsored by the Florida chapter of the American Pharmacists Association Academy of Student Pharmacists. Information from the APhA national projects Operation Diabetes, Operation Immunization, Heartburn Awareness and Poison Prevention will be available.
