The sixth “Matters of the Heart: A Health and Wellness Expo” will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 13, in the Surbeck Student Center Ballroom at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology.
The fair is designed 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. Highlights include massages, body fat analysis, dorm room workouts, healthy relationships and push-up and sit-up contests.
The purpose is to increase awareness and provide information to students on health issues, as well offer them free health screenings.
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.
The Expo usually features 30 to 50 groups that host booths. Between 200 and 350 people usually attend.
