PA Program hosts health day at Buies Creek Elementary School

Students and faculty from Campbell University’s PA Program recently spent the day at Buies Creek Elementary to show 4th and 5th graders how to get enough physical activity and stay healthy. View pictures from the event.

 

Elementary students walked through an interactive health fair to learn about nutrition, dental hygiene, saying no to peer pressure, and personal hygiene.

 

“The nutrition station showed the kids how to make fun, easy and nutritional snacks,” said Charmeen Mack, first-year PA student who was a lead organizer for the event.

 

A field day was simultaneously held outside where students actively participated in zumba, self-defense lessons, relays races, and stretching.

 

“With being the PA inaugural class, we felt that it was imperative for us to do something within our own community to promote healthy living,” Mack said.  “We want our community to know who we are and what we can do as PA students and faculty to make our community better and stronger.”
