Johnson C. Smith University is hosting a Health Fair/Career Fair featuring 40 vendors, chiropractic services, a free-throw contest, HIV testing, graduate schools, employers and more. The event is free and open to the community and JCSU campus.

“I hope that the community comes and educates themselves on their health,” said Dr. Robert Lindsey, chair of the Department of Health and Human Performance. “I also hope that anyone who is looking to attend graduate school or obtain employment realizes success through the fair. Plus, we just want everyone to have fun!”

Expected highlights of the day include a line dancing contest, free massages, and networking for graduate school or employment. Attendees should come prepared for on-site interviews. It is the 12th annual year of the Health Fair, and this year brings new partnerships with UNC-Charlotte, Pfeiffer University, Campbell University, Devry University, and the JCSU MSW programs as the university positions itself as a feeder program for students interested in graduate school.
