Annual Nursing Health Fair at CEP

Chilliwack Campus at CEP

UFV’s annual Nursing Health Fair is coming home.

After years of setting up in malls, Bachelor of Science in Nursing students will unveil diverse displays dedicated to health promotion inside UFV’s Chilliwack campus at Canada Education Park on Wednesday, March 19.

Future nurses will be in the west atrium from 9 am–6 pm, discussing health topics ranging from fad diets and detoxes to sleep deprivation, avoiding skin cancer, preventing Type 2 diabetes, and others.

Using statistical data and applied theory, the event ties several core concepts and integrated developmental theories. It also includes great giveaways and prize draws.

A new aspect to this year’s fair is a presentation by Dr. Lenore Newman, who holds a Canada Research Chair in Food Security and the Environment at UFV, and Agriculture instructor Tom Baumann. Titled ‘From Food to Health’, their talk delves into the production food, following it from field to fork.

While the mall set-up typically serviced seniors, co-organizer and nursing instructor Sandra Flynn hopes the move to CEP helps expand the Health Fair’s reach to students, area residents, staff, faculty, and even police from the nearby Pacific Region Training Centre.
