Health Fair to be Hosted by BCC Health Ed Students on March 30 from 11 am – 1:30 pm, Atrium

19 March 2017

As we have done for the last 10 years, each semester our students work hard to design, plan, research and present a Health Fair to the entire college community.  Every aspect of the planning is done by the students, including selecting topics, researching them, creating vibrant display boards and important handouts for participants, out-reaching to community agencies and resources, and inviting vendors to table.


This service learning project is often the highlight of the semester, and our students deserve to have as many attend as possible!  You might even consider sending your students and creating an assignment for extra credit, as many of you have done in the past.


Please join me in supporting this important work and see you at the Health Fair on Thursday, March 30, from 11:00 am to 1:30 pm, in the BCC Atrium!


For more information, please contact Stephanie Sanders-Badt, ssanders-badt@peralta.edu, and visit the Public and Human Services website
