Health Fair Teaches Choices for Increased Well-Being
Apr 10, 2017
(NORTH BAY, ONT.) – Next week, Canadore’s School of Sport and Recreation students will be sharing their insights for adopting a healthy and active lifestyle at an interactive Health Fair.
For the sixth consecutive year, the fair will showcase the efforts of students in Professor Michelle Cundari’s Health and Wellness class. A work assignment tasked each team of students to raise awareness of a predominant health issue faced by college students. They also had to define solutions to overcome the concern, including outlining community resources to help them make better choices.
“Although the assignment suggested issues affecting students, the truth is most of us face, or have encountered these same things,” said Cundari. “The students have worked hard, and have come up with some clever interactive presentations to help others come to the same conclusions.”
Informative displays on the importance of stress management and coping mechanisms, physical literacy, sleep, the effects of eating disorders, chew tobacco and the benefits of pet therapy and healthy eating.
Attendees are encouraged to complete a passport to win healthy living prizes.
All media are welcome to attend.
Date: Monday, April 10, 2017
Time: 1:30 – 4:00 p.m.
Location: Front Lobby, College Drive Campus, 100 College Drive, North Bay, Ont.
