Get Fit, Stay Healthy at Rutgers Day

Reminisce about the days before Wii Fit and learn low-tech tips for combating childhood obesity at Rutgers Day. Visit the Old School Fit program on the Busch Campus where adults can get reacquainted with their inner child as they join the Minority Association of Pre-Health Students for hopscotch, double Dutch and other schoolyard games.

Doctor visits can be scary for little patients, but activities at Rutgers Day can help children conquer those fears. Children can bring their teddy bears and have their questions answered at the Voorhees Mall during a checkup by hospital professionals from Saint Peter’s Healthcare System. Once teddy’s exam is complete, pop over to UMDMJ’s mobile pediatric van on Cook Campus and show the doctors how brave you’ve become while getting checked out.

St Peter's Community Mobile Health Services will be among the many providing free medical screenings during Rutgers Day.

Free screenings abound at Rutgers Day for adults, including body composition assessments by the Nutritional Sciences Graduate Student Association and blood pressure screenings by the Department of Occupational Health, both on Cook Campus. RU Healthy? Stop by the Voorhees Mall for a screening sponsored by the College of Nursing and find out. And let the professionals from UMDNJ’s Institute of Ophthalmology & Visual Science take a peek at your peepers during their vision screenings on the Busch Campus.

Throwing old medicine out doesn’t necessarily keep it out of the hands of abusers.

Bring your unused and expired medications to Operation Medicine Cabinet on Lipman Drive so the Rutgers University Police Department can safely dispose them.
