Join Roseman University for a 5K Run/Health Fair

April 25, 2012

It’s not too late to sign up for the South Jordan 5K run on April 28, then join Roseman University pharmacy, nursing, and dental students for a health fair, and drop your unused prescriptions off at the joint Roseman University/South Jordan Police Department drug take-back at South Jordan City Offices.

The day’s events will begin at 8:00 a.m., with a 5K Fun Run/Walk on the Jordan River Parkway Trail across the street from Roseman University. Prizes will be awarded to the top finishers.

The Health Fair, which also begins at 8:00 a.m., is in the main building of the Roseman South Jordan campus, and includes free health screenings such as cholesterol, glucose, and blood pressure, information on safe disposal of expired and unused prescription medications, a Red Cross blood drive, vendors, prizes, and more. The event will raise money for the National Community Pharmacists Association (NCPA) student chapter and the second-year pharmacy class at Roseman’s Utah campus. Nursing and dental medicine students will also be helping with the health fair.

Students from the Drug Abuse Awareness Team (DAAT) are coordinating with South Jordan Police to collect unused and expired prescription and over-the-counter medications as part of the Drug Enforcement Agency’s (DEA) National Drug Take-Back Day.
