Participate in Nurses' Week Fun Run and Health Walk May 4


Show your support for the Health Science Center nursing students and the nursing profession by participating in the Delta Alpha's first 5K Fun Run and Health Walk from 8 to 11 a.m. Saturday, May 4, at the university's running track, pavilion and lower field. Prizes will be awarded to the male and female who place first, second and third in the competing age categories. All registrants will receive a ribbon for participating.

Delta Alpha is the local chapter of the Sigma Theta Tau International Nursing Honor Society. One of the primary goals of the chapter is to provide scholarships and research grant support for students in the UTHSC nursing program. Dr. Janet Allan, dean of the School of Nursing, has enthusiastically given her approval for this event and would like to see it become an annual event to kick off National Nurses' Week, which is May 6-12.

For more information or to register, contact Viola Benavente, chair of the fund-raising committee for the Delta Alpha chapter at ext. 7-5799 or send an e-mail to
