Locals got a chance to check on their health for free thanks to students from Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi.

TAMUCC nursing students hosted a Community Health Fair over at the campus, offering the community an opportunity to get a check-up. Alongside students, the Coastal Bend Blood Bank took donations, and other local groups offered various screenings and consultations about health issues such as diet.

From blood sugar and blood pressure screenings to advice about eating habits, the event gave locals a chance to focus on their health.

However, the students helping to host the event also got something out of the deal, learning about health resources and organizations active in our community while gaining valuable experience.

The next health fair will be hosted during fall semester at TAMUCC.
