NEIT to Host Health and Wellness Event

Stop by the New England Tech East Greenwich campus on Wednesday, October 24, 2012, from 3:00-6:00 p.m. in celebration of National Physical Therapy month and Breast Cancer Awareness month.  Our Physical Therapist Assistant (PTA) Technology students will be hosting, “Move Forward into Health and Wellness,” a free informational event that is open to the public. Our campus is located at One New England Tech Blvd (GPS use zip code 02818).  Just enter through the main entrance, and you will be directed to the PTA Department in Room N303.

Several PTA students will be on-hand to present information on such important topics as Nutrition — You Are What You Eat, Breast Cancer Awareness and Prevention, Golf and Recreation after Fifty, Heads-Up: Posture and Balance Assessment, and Kiddie Korner –Educational and Fun Activities for Children from Ages 5-12.  The students are offering this workshop as part of their required curriculum. They are very excited since this is the first time the public is invited along with the college community.

Free blood pressure screenings will be available along with healthy snacks and interactive activities.  For more information, contact PTA faculty member, Debra Adams at 401-739-5000 or dadams@neit.edu.
