Flu shot

Following is a memo to the Northwestern community.

In an effort to build and sustain a healthy campus environment, Northwestern invites faculty and staff to this year’s Health and Benefits Fairs; October 11 on the Chicago campus, and October 18 on the Evanston campus.

The Health and Benefits Fairs are designed to increase your knowledge of wellness practices, preventive care options and 2017 benefit plan updates. Each fair will provide a variety of health screenings, educational materials and referrals. With the goal of raising awareness of wellness and health-related resources that are available, the fairs are intended to encourage members of the Northwestern community to make positive changes in their health behavior. Participants will be able to obtain information and speak with health care, insurance and investment company experts who can further outline their benefit programs, answer questions and highlight specific options. Both events are free.
