The Kish College students were joined by Pat Mitchell, assistant professor of nursing instructor, for their NUR 249 Mental Health Nursing class. Mitchell partnered with Mary Gawrys, nursing instructor at NIU, who coordinates community nursing clinical experiences, to offer the Health Fair. This is the fourth year Kish and NIU have partnered to offer the free health fairs in the community.
