Many Surry students will also be involved as SCC’s Physical Education Department, Physical Therapist Assistant program and Sports Medicine club will be represented as well.

Those in attendance will be able to take part in many fun, engaging health and fitness tests, such as having their blood pressure checked and their Body Mass Index (BMI) measured, and will be able to receive tips and insight into improving their health.

Surry’s Student and Community Engagement Coordinator Kasey Martin described the goal of the event as an opportunity for “our students, faculty, staff and the entire community to come to one location to obtain information on local opportunities that can be of benefit to not only their personal health, but to the health of their family members, as well.”
