Another Successful Health Fair!

"So, what exactly is studying for 10 hours a day doing to my spine?"

On Tuesday, October 8, a beautiful fall day, PTS’s Wholistic Health Initiative held its second annual wholistic health fair on the Seminary campus. Two hundred students, staff, and faculty strolled from table to table seeing what various exhibitors had to offer for healthier lifestyles.

Wegman’s Market, one of the new vendors this year among the 30 who participated, gave away energy bars and beverages, while massages, mocktails (nonalcoholic beverages), blood pressure checks, and making “stress balls” at the Wholistic Health Initiative/On-Campus Counseling table were popular stops along the way. Other exhibitors offered information on spiritual direction, debt counseling, chiropractic services, aromatherapy, acupuncture, healthy eating, reiki, herbology, physical fitness, and mental health.

Deborah van Deusen Hunsinger, associate professor of pastoral theology, thought the fair was a great idea. She believes that it is important to expose students to “all these alternatives and get them thinking about bigger health issues, both for themselves and the people they serve.”

Shirley Hensford, an M.Div. senior, always enjoys the health fair and appreciates that it is put together on the students’ behalf. “As rigorous as our schedule is, we need a reminder to stop, breathe, and take care of ourselves,” she says.
