Health fair being held this week


UTMACs Health Fair will take place this week at Gym A at the Recreation and Wellness Centre. The Health Fair, a part of UTMACs Health Week, will feature over 20 community groups from both UTM and the wider community.

The Health Fair isnt just about physical health. UTMAC planned this event to represent a range of health and wellness topics. These include social wellbeing, intellectual, mental and emotional wellness, and of course physical wellness. Peel Public Heath, Distress Center Peel, [email protected], the Sexual Education Center, the Department of Physical Education, the Health and Counseling Center, the Robert Gillespie Academic Skills Centre and the Canadian Blood Services are all scheduled to participate.

On Tuesday, UTMAC will host an Athletic Combine, where students will challenge themselves to get through a series of different physical exercises as fast as possible. Dodgeball Tournament is in the works, and there is even talk of a Wii-Fit challenge.

Throughout the week, the HCCs Peer Health Educators will also make their presence felt. On Monday, the Drugs and Alcohol team, together with the Healthy Sexuality and Healthy Relationships teams, will host a display in the Meeting Place. The focus will be on sex, drugs and alcohol.

There will be prizes and giveaways and participants are guaranteed to walk away with more knowledge on the subject of sex and drugs.

On Thursday, the Mental Health and Stress Management Team along with the Nutrition and Activity Team have another set of fun and informative activities in store for the UTM population.
