Tuscaloosa, Alabama – Shelton State Community College will host its 30th Annual Health and Wellness Fair on Tuesday, March 10 from 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. in the Atrium of the Martin Campus.  Admission to the fair is free, and the event is open to the public.  All are invited to attend this showcase of healthy living.

 

A College-wide event since 1990, the Shelton State Wellness Center is excited to host this event for a thirtieth year.  “The tradition of this fair is very important to me, and I am proud of its longevity due to College and community support,” stated Dr. Milady Murphy, Shelton State’s Wellness Director.  “I believe in its importance in terms of promoting physical and mental well-being and providing information that can improve someone’s quality of life.”

 

Many vendors are returning participants and will provide information on medicine, fitness, disease prevention, health, beauty, sports, nutrition, and community service agencies.  Fitness, martial arts, and ballroom demonstrations are scheduled to occur throughout the fair.

 

The Wellness Center on Shelton State’s Martin Campus is open year-round and offers opportunities for students of all ages.  Health and physical education classes through credit and non-credit programs include a certificate program for students interested in becoming exercise instructors and personal trainers.  As part of the curriculum, students learn the basics of nutrition for disease prevention and exercise physiology.
