Tampa Bay Downs Health Fair 2018

The annual Tampa Bay Downs Health Fair was held on Thursday, February 8, 2018, at the race track. This event is designed for the employees who work ”behind the scenes” at Tampa Bay Downs by providing care and education to their workers on occupational health and safety.  Through an interprofessional effort, USF Health medical, nursing, pharmacy, and physician assistant students provided blood sugar and cholesterol screenings while under clinical supervision. USF Physical Therapy students performed musculoskeletal screenings under the direct supervision of faculty members. Race track employees were educated on muscle strains, falls, working in extreme temperatures, and cardiovascular health.
