With the collaborative efforts of Cal State Northridge faculty, staff, students and community members, the university is hosting a Health and Wellbeing Fair on Saturday, May 1.
The event, slated to go from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., is scheduled to take place in parking lots E6 and D6 on the north side of campus at 18111 Nordhoff St. in Northridge.
The objective of the fair is to promote health to the CSUN community and the residents of the San Fernando Valley.
“This is the first health fair sponsored by the new Institute for Community Health and Wellbeing at CSUN and it is an opportunity to showcase the wonderful centers we have on campus which serve our community,” said Dr. Louis Rubino, interim director for the Institute for Community Health and Wellbeing. “The fair is being coordinated by students from two classes, Health Administration and Leisure and Tourism Management, as part of their course responsibility.”
The fair, which includes local community businesses, health providers and organizations, will showcase the health services provided at CSUN’s centers, as well as local health organizations and agencies. The Health and Wellbeing Fair will educate and raise awareness about various health issues, resources, and services.
Among the CSUN organizations that will be at the fair are the Center of Achievement and Abbot and Linda Brown Center for Adaptive Aquatic Therapy, Family Focus and Empowerment Resource Center, the Klotz Student Health Center and the Language, Speech and Hearing Center.
Off-campus participants include Anthem Blue Cross, Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health, and Regal Medical Group.
