What do phlebotomists, nurses and a reiki master have in common? All of them will be found at Northern Essex Community College’s Health Profession: Health and Wellness Fair on Monday, April 13, from 9 a.m. until noon in the lobby of the 1st & 2nd floors of the  Spurk Building, 100 Elliott  St., Haverhill.

Student and faculty representatives, from all NECC health programs, including iHealth@NECC, will be available to discuss the value of each academic health program as well as health issues related to that program’s topic. Some of the health topics include, “The Use & Function of the Automated External Defibrilator’, ‘Getting a Good Night’s Sleep’; “What is your Blood Type and How the Blood Bank Finds the Perfect Match for You”; “Oral Health = Overall Wellness: The Oral Systemic Connection” ; “How Reiki Heals You” “Domestic Violence”; “Privacy & Security in Protected Health Information”; “Smoking Cessation & Lung Health Awareness,” “Bone Fractures”; “Phlebotomists – We’re so Vein”;  “Conjunctivitis’; and “Who Says Medical Coding Isn’t Fun?”.

In addition, there will be a spokesperson from the New England Organ Bank discussing the merits of enrolling to be an organ donor; a reiki master will be available to demonstrate this alternative therapy.   All individuals who visit all tables and complete their ‘raffle cards’ will be entered in raffles for various wonderful prizes.
