Eco Health and Wellness Fair is May 8

The annual Wellness Fair has expanded its focus this year to become the Eco Health and Wellness Fair, a collaboration between the Wellness Center and the Student Health Outreach and Promotion (SHOP). It will take place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Tuesday, May 8, in Quarry Plaza.

Arranged like a resource fair, the event will have many informative booths with ecology and health professionals from the UCSC community as well as the Santa Cruz community, free health assesments, screenings, refreshments, prizes and more. "Ask a Yogi," "Ask a Doctor," and "Ask a Sexpert" will be additional booths providing specialized information. A Luna booth will provide information on women's health and nutrition. Chair massages will be offered by Shelly Patton and the Wholistic Health Program.

Free health assessments are scheduled to include strength testing and body fat index and mental health screenings for depression, anxiety, and eating disorders.
