Convocation Center

More than 40 health care industry representatives will staff booths, conduct screenings, offer giveaways and more at Cal U’s 29th annual health fair.

The free event is coordinated by the University’s Health and Wellness Education Center. The event is open to the public, as well as to the entire campus community.

Education — and a healthy dose of fun — is the goal of the event, which addresses health and wellness topics such as diabetes, smoking cessation, orthopedics, healthy eating and more.

Central Blood Bank will conduct a blood drive during the event. Rite-Aid pharmacy staff will administer flu shots; cost is $31.99, and insurance cards will be accepted.

In addition to the pamphlets and giveaways offered by exhibitors, Cal U’s Health Education Awareness Resource Team (HEART) will hand out free sunglasses, megaphones and cellphone wallets during the event.

Bottled water and healthy snack packs will be distributed randomly throughout the day.

Hear Tonight, a band featuring Cal U students, will perform in the Convocation Center courtyard. Temporary tattoo artists and caricature artists will provide entertainment.
