fall flingThe Fall Fling is an interactive health fair with the objectives of educating UMKC faculty, staff and students about physical health needs, the services that are available both on campus and in the community and empowering the UMKC family to make healthy lifestyle choices.  Make plans to stop by Pierson Auditorium between 11am and 2pm on October 1st.

Free health screenings, testing, immunizations (including Meningitis, Flu, Tdap, HPV, Hep A and Hep B), and additional resources will be available at the health fair.

One of the most important vaccinations for college students is for Meningitis. This can be a serious bacterial or viral infection that attacks the membranes covering the brain and spinal cord. Meningitis is a preventable disease that can affect college students and cause serious and even fatal consequences. The Missouri Health and Senior Services brochure is a great informational resource on Meningitis.

Punch cards will be given to all who attend. Submit your completed punch card for a chance to win one of three raffle prizes.
