Vet Your Health - Harlingen

Occurs on (Central Time):

About This Event: 

Want to know more about how to keep your family healthy and happy while having FUN together at the same time?

We're bringing RGV veterans, friends, and family together at the Southern Careers Institute Harlingen campus for a festival to

  • participate in live demos by fitness professionals and SCI medical staff and students
  • learn about preventative care to keep your whole household healthy
  • play in our kiddie carnival
  • eat 'n' drink with affordable menus from local food vendors

WHY? Because SCI wants to serve our veteran community as a thank-you for serving us.*

DID YOU KNOW that veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms are more likely to have a greater number of physical health problems than those who do not have PTSD? (U.S. Dept. of Federal Affairs). The health of our brains and bodies has a huge impact on the people that matter most and healthy families make healthy communities.
