UNCW’s nursing program sponsored the Seahawks and Seniors Health Fair at the New Hanover County Senior Center on Thursday.

Nursing students talked to seniors about health topics including nutrition, fall prevention, and emotional well-being. For students and seniors, it was a chance for some personal interaction.

“It’s good to actually come out of the classroom setting, come into the community,” said UNCW nursing student Thomas Mangiacapre. “Being that I’ve grown up here, it’s nice to get inside of some of the facilities I’ve never been inside and work with our older population.”

Lee Cook visited the health fair and said, “I enjoyed coming over here to the senior center and interacting with nursing students, I enjoyed it.”

During the fair a few of the seniors showed off their talents with some dance routines, singing, and jokes.
