Community Supports Health and Wellness Day

The Health and Wellness Screening Day held on Sept. 24, on UVI’s St. Thomas campus attracted more than 240 participants from UVI and the general community. Attendees were able to take advantage of free health screenings for blood pressure, blood glucose, blood cholesterol and HIV, along with eye exams and massage therapy. The event was sponsored by the Health Services Office. Students look on as Toni Gillman, Health Services temporary evening nurse, performs a massage. Gillman, a registered nurse who is trained in Holistic Nursing and Vibrational Medicine, offers massages at the Health Services Office on the St. Thomas campus from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and by appointments.
