Ranging from stress and lifestyle management to healthy sleep patterns and sexual health, UFV’s longstanding Health Fair offers a wide variety of topics for the general public 9am-5:30pm Monday, March 27 inside Building A’s atrium at UFV’s campus at Canada Education Park.
The event also features a special Dean’s Speaker Series presentation at noon entitled Addressing the Overdose Crisis.
Presented by 4th-year Nursing students, this year’s Health Fair focuses on young to middle-age adults.
“It’s an exciting and meaningful opportunity for BSN nursing students to engage with peers, staff, faculty and members of the public in discussions about statistically relevant health topics. Participants can ask health questions, share health stories and reflect on steps they can take to maintain or enhance their health,” says associate professor Kate McCulloch.
This year’s fair includes several displays: binge drinking; immunizations; healthy eating; substance misuse; bone health; HPV; stress and lifestyle management; healthy sleep patterns; sexual health; and hypertension (high blood pressure).
