The Health Fair also brought to campus various organizations
from outside the University, including 24-Hour Fitness, the
American Lung Association, the American Red Cross, the Emergency
Medical Response Team, the Central YWCA, and more. Its
all to help students examine themselves and improve their
health, said Hubbard.
Kaiser Permanente Heath Center gave away health benefits
such as free hospital visits and prescription discounts. Even
though the HPU Kaiser Clinic will move off campus in May,
we will still provide the same great service to HPU students,
said Alan Okamura, Nursing Supervisor from Kaiser. Our
new location will be the Kaiser Permanente Honolulu Clinic
on Pensacola Street.
One booth about Sexually Transmitted Diseases provided information
such as signs and symptoms of different STDs, and also
educated people on how to prevent them. We are here
to give away our brochures or flyers about STDs, but
we sometimes scare people away, said a nursing student.
So, we just put them on our table for people to take.
The HPU Health Fair not only provided information but also
taught people ways to keep healthy. Two stress management
sessions taught students how to release stress.
I am so stressed out from all final projects and exams,
so I am here to learning how to relax, said Linda DAuito,
an HPU senior. I believe this skill can be used in any
situation in my life.
The HPU Cheerleaders and Dancers did aerobic performances
and demonstrated how exercise and aerobics can help individuals
to live healthy.
