FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Health and Wellness Expo Thursday
The fifth “ Matters of the Heart: A Health and Wellness Expo” will be held from 10 a. m. to 3 p. m. Thursday, Feb. 14, in the Surbeck Student Center Ballroom at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology.
The fair is geared for Tech students and focuses on health issues for young people, such as sports injuries, nutrition, drug, alcohol, and tobacco use and abuse, stress management, sexually transmitted diseases, and other issues young people face. Tech also invites high school students and young adults to attend.
The purpose is to increase awareness and provide information for Tech students on health issues as well offer them free health screenings. It also gives them some connection to community resources.
This year, United Blood Services will sponsor a blood drive during the fair. The Tech Athletic Department will have information about sports training techniques and sign- ups for intramural sports. There also will be fun contests, prizes, and giveaways.
“ Matters of the Heart: A Health and Wellness Expo” began in 1997. The Expo usually features 30 to 50 groups that host booths. Between 200 and 350 participants usually attend.
