Phi Delta Chi, Northeastern's fra­ter­nity of phar­macy stu­dents, is co-​​hosting the annual Bouvé Col­lege of Health Sci­ences Health Fair and Free Flu Clinic on Wednesday.

The event will take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Curry Stu­dent Center indoor quad. It will fea­ture a blood drive, free cho­les­terol tests and a flu shot clinic, which will take place in the ball­room. It is sup­ported by the Stu­dent Activity Fee and co-​​sponsored by the Bouvé Col­lege of Health Sci­ences and the Stu­dent Gov­ern­ment Asso­ci­a­tion.

North­eastern stu­dents, fac­ulty and staff are eli­gible to receive free flu shots; last year more than 800 vac­ci­na­tions were administered.

"It's some­thing we're really encour­aging people to do. The flu can impact us on campus and in Boston more than other areas because people live and work so close together," said Erica Dia­man­tides, a fifth-​​year phar­macy major who is chairing the annual fair for her fra­ter­nity. "It's very impor­tant to get vaccinated."

She noted that 15 stu­dent orga­ni­za­tions and seven out­side ven­dors are already reg­is­tered to par­tic­i­pate in the health fair.

"We have a lot of phar­macy, health-​​science orga­ni­za­tions, and other stu­dent orga­ni­za­tions pre­senting on topics like the pros and cons of energy drinks and how to avoid the 'Freshmen 15' by eating healthy," Dia­man­tides said.
