Ohio University Zanesville students invited the public to spend their lunch hour learning about issues that affect women’s health.
The annual event was organized by members of the Women’s Healthcare class at OU-Z.
Class member Joe Goldsmith said the purpose of the event is to make sure women educate themselves on health topics that may affect them during their lifetime.
"It’s for everybody, bit it’s geared toward women, just because they are less likely to seek the attention and advice for medical problems," said Goldsmith.
Over 30 tables, with local vendors and student displays were on hand for the event.
Goldsmith said having the access to information for women is important since many women shy away from medical treatment.
"It’s easier for them to walk through here and ask general questions without going to a healthcare provider and asking them the same thing," said Goldsmith.
Other health services including AIDS testing and blood pressure screenings were offered at the Health Fair.
