Ogeechee Tech Participates in Georgia Southern Wellness Fair

Participants react to the amount of fat found in some of their favorite snack foods.
Participants react to the amount of fat found in some of their favorite snack foods.

In an effort to promote health and wellness Ogeechee Technical College participated in a Wellness Fair recently on the Georgia Southern University campus.  A number of organizations were on hand to provide health screenings, information, and support for GSU students and others in an effort to promote a healthy life-style.  Ogeechee Tech Health Occupations instructors Marilyn Turner and Micelle McCranie demonstrated the amount of fat contained in a variety of typical snack foods.  The corresponding amount of fat contained in each single serving of a snack food was measured out in lard as an illustration of the amount of fat that is normally consumed with certain food choices.

General health information was provided, as well as blood pressure monitoring, at the Ogeechee Tech table.  For more information on any of the Health Science programs at Ogeechee Tech, visit www.ogeecheetech.edu.
