BSU students attend Laporte health fair

BEMIDJI – Three Bemidji State University seniors participated in the Laporte Health Fair on Feb. 21.

The fair educated K-12 students, families and community members on various health topics.

Amanda Lom, Rebecca Jerry and Michelle Williamson of the BSU Lifestyle Educators attended the fair to present the health implications and high costs of tobacco use. They also highlighted Bemidji State’s Tobacco Free Campus policy.

An estimated 150 people visited the Lifestyle Educators table, and prizes, were awarded to those who spun the “smokers roulette wheel.”

The Lifestyle Educators also collaborated with the BSU Admissions office and distributed recruitment materials to high school students.
