Engaging the Purdue and local communities is an important priority for the Ismail Center. It accomplishes this through collaborations with and direct service to local organizations. Some examples of this involvement are listed below.
Health and Fitness Screenings
Health and fitness assessments are available for local businesses and organizations in the Greater Lafayette Area. Capabilities include blood profiles (cholesterol, triglyceride, glucose), blood pressure, body fat percentage, strength, flexibility, aerobic endurance and more.
The Ismail Center continues to advocate regular exercise and physical activity for all adults by participating in local health fairs. Information about the benefits of exercise and how to get started on a program are just some of the topical literature distributed at the fairs. Fitness specialists are on hand to answer questions and conduct assessments.
