Faculty and Staff Resource Fair 2013 set for October

Free flu shots will be offered as part of the event


Registration is now open for Ohio University employees interested in attending the annual Faculty and Staff Resource Fair set for Oct. 9 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Baker University Center Ballroom.

The event, hosted by University Human Resources, boasts more than 35 vendors currently registered to present information to OHIO employees, with additional vendors expected to sign up for display space. 

Groups slated to be on-hand to answer employee questions include:

  • Anthem Blue Cross/ Blue Shield
  • Campus Recreation, Diversity and Inclusion, Human Resources, Payroll, Risk Management & Safety
  • Ohio University Credit Union
  • Many Alternative and Supplemental Retirement Plan providers
  • UNUM (Long Term Disability)

A full list can be found on the Human Resources website. This list will be updated as new vendors are added.

As in previous years, the Kroger Pharmacy will be offering free flu and/or pneumonia shots to employees covered by the University's Anthem/Express Scripts insurance plans. Individuals who register for an appointment for a vaccine will be sent a consent form to fill out and bring with them to the resource fair.

Representatives from the American Cancer Society will also be available during the resource fair. The organization will have a location set up in the Multipurpose Room from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for the Cancer Prevention Study -3 screening. The ACS is partnering with Ohio University in the effort to recruit men and women ages 30 to 65 that have no personal history of cancer for a historic cancer prevention study. Participants will be asked to sign a consent form, complete a survey and have a non-fasting blood sample taken as well as a waist measurement. More information is available at www.AthensCPS3.org.

Attendees can enter door prize drawings at participating tables. Those who bring food item(s) to donate to the Athens County Food Pantry will be entered into a special door prize drawing. For more information visit: www.athenscountyfoodpantry.org
