GMercyU Hosts Annual Wellness Fair

April 7, 2016
Gwynedd Mercy University's Health and Wellness Fair

Gwynedd Mercy University hosted its Health and Wellness Fair on Wednesday, April 6, 2016. The annual event featured more than 20 participants who assisted the GMercyU community in living a healthier lifestyle. Nutritional counseling, cancer screening tips, eye exams, and information on sport safety were just some of the many services available. 

Director of GMercyU's Health and Wellness Center Donna Ferguson demonstrated how to use the Automated External Defibrillators (AED) that were recently placed around campus. The AED provides a shock to the heart when there is a life-threatening change to the normal beating of a heart and should only be used in emergency situations. 

Cassie Romano '08/'10, who is a nurse at Einstein Montgomery Hospital, shared nutrition advice and tips for healthy eating. Fellow alum Alyssa Walters '08 showcased her business, Modern Essentials Group, which uses pure essential oils to revolutionize the way families manage their health.
