A Wellness Fair featuring health screenings, local organizations, and other wellness information will be held from 11 a.m.-2  p.m., on April 2 in the West Concourse at the Lehigh Valley campus.

During the fair, the campus community will have the opportunity to participate in cholesterol and blood pressure screenings, receive a seated chair massage, and learn about a variety of topics such as sun safety and nutrition from local organizations including St. Luke's Hospital, the Crime Victims Council, and Aikido Masters Self-Defense Academy.

In addition, Penn State's Employee Wellness Program will host "Know Your Numbers" from 9 a.m.-2:30 p.m. in the MOD Building.
