DETROIT, Mich. -- The 2014 Marygrove "Live Well" Wellness Fair – held on the northwest Detroit campus Wednesday (March 26) – was once again a great success under the direction of William Pugh, the College's assistant athletic director for sports medicine & wellness. The annual event featured free health screenings, HIV/AIDS testing, multiple vendor displays, and a series of skits performed by Professor Kalimah Johnson's IS 326C HIV-AIDS class.

Professor Johnson's class also performed short stories related to their course matter for those in attendance and played a facts & myths game regarding HIV/AIDS awareness.

The free health screenings offered blood pressure checks and sickle cell testing for the campus community. The Michigan Department of Community Health, Division of Health, Wellness and Disease Control, administered HIV/AIDS testing and offered a STD test.

In total, well over 100 members of the Marygrove community (faculty, staff, and students) engaged in the variety of offerings throughout the course of the three-hour event. The participation of 100-plus community members was virtually a mirrored effort to last year's record-breaking wellness fair.

"I'm very pleased with the support and turnout from the Marygrove community at this year's wellness fair," said Pugh. "It was great to see our community take advantage of the great services that were made available by our health professionals. A special thanks goes out to the Marygrove athletic family, especially the women's soccer team, for their assistance and support in making this year's wellness fair a success."
