Health Fair full of giveaways and takeaways for students and staff

UWindsor students and staff were educated on wellness issues and treated to giveaways at the Health Fair in the CAW Student Centre Commons on Wednesday.

“Students need to know about our programs so that they can easily access the help they need right here on campus,” says Sophie Kargl, who staffed a booth for Campus Recreation.

Kargl promoted physical activity and fitness classes at the Forge Fitness Centre, encouraging students to spin the Info Wheel, which had questions testing their knowledge of health issues affecting young people.

The displays by health providers on campus and in the community invited attendees to enjoy a rejuvenating mini-massage, take the eChug Challenge to check alcohol consumption, and register to become bone marrow or organ donors, among others.

The fair was sponsored by Student Health Services, Campus Recreation, the University of Windsor Students’ Alliance and the Organization of Part-time University Students. Find more information at
