About 20 Nursing students from the Child and Family course and their Professor Catharine Critz, PhD, provided first aid, blood pressure screening, and education about immunizations and vaping. Several Public Health students and facilitator Lytle offered a Teen Zone Booth, featuring a game with various exercises and trivia questions and public health education on healthy living, nutrition, and mindfulness.
