Valley City State University Health Services will once again host the annual Wellness Fair on Wednesday, April 19 from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. in the Student Center on campus.

Participants can try a variety of screenings and testings such as Dermascan and InBody 270 and also have a chance at winning door prizes such as workout gear, cooking appliances and gift cards.
“The importance of learning more about how we all can improve our health and wellness cannot be overstated,” said Betty Tykwinski, MSN, RN, director of VCSU Health Services. “The Wellness Fair offers a wealth of information and activities for people of all ages, and we’re grateful that our sponsors — CHI Mercy Health, Family Healthcare, and Sanford Health — are helping us bring this valuable event to the campus and community.”
Specific opportunities for participants include having their blood pressure checked, learning compression-only CPR, trying DermaScan skin screening, experiencing virtual mediation, playing cornhole or learning simple yoga moves.
