Pulaski Technical College kicked off its two-day 2009 Health Challenge fair on February 9. Guest speakers included Former Dallas Cowboys player Reggie Swinton and former Arkansas Razorbacks receiver Anthony Lucas. Lennon Parker, Web communication specialist was the emcee and gave out prizes every half hour.
The 2009 Health Challenge is a campus health and wellness program and is open to everyone on campus. The goal is to help faculty, staff and students learn about the prevention of heart disease and strokes, the importance of calling 911 in emergencies, and signs of high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Participants will become healthier and more knowledgeable about nutrition and exercise. Attendees of the healthy fair were able to have their blood pressure, glucose levels and cholesterol checked and sign up for the "PTC Loses a Ton" and "PTC Walks 10,000 Miles" health challenges. Grant funds from the Arkansas Department of Health Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention program and the Arkansas Collegiate Drug Education Committee are being invested to make the 2009 Health Challenge possible.
