First Annual Health Fair

Just over a week ago, our M1 and M2 students were thrilled to be able to host our very first Health Fair!

The Health Fair was was fittingly hosted a year to the day after our directors (Saima and Lisa) officially began to plan for the event. Over that year, they assembled a valiant team of directors and volunteers who worked together under the guiding light of our extraordinary faculty advisor to make last year's dream become this year's reality.

The ups, downs, ins, and outs of planning will not be documented here because I can never hope to understand the incredible amount of detail that was involved. Also after being involved with Team PR, I now question whether anything I post is, in fact, legal. 

So in order to celebrate this great event, here is an iPhone photo tour of this momentous day!

Most of the set up was completed the Friday afternoon before the event. Saturday's set up included extraordinary feats like setting up that beautiful tent you can see in the background of this photo, as well as figuring out where (and how) to hang our banner.

Here we are contemplating ideas. 

Several strategies were tested:

But finally we found the perfect placement.

Here is a photo courtesy of our incredible faculty advisor to better illustrate the set up. You can also see the DJ setting up to provide entertainment for those attending the event. 

We also had to bring in some last essential supplies:

Including LOTS of pamphlets:

AND essential ingredients for our nutrionist demonstration:

Our faculty and student volunteers then headed to their stations:

Where we made sure that all of our supplies were in order:

As you can tell, we were all beyond excited that the big day had finally come. 

The day absolutely flew by, with new volunteers shifting in and out of stations all morning to provide relief. 

Several of our volunteers even took a break to donate to the Blood Bank!

Perhaps the only aspect of the day that could use improvement was the choice to allow yours truly to document it, as evidenced by the existence of a photo of Louis eating a healthy snack.

Thanks to all who participated!
