Douglas College 2017 Health Fair

Tuesday March 14th  - Coquitlam Atrium

Wednesday March 15th – New West Concourse

10:00AM – 3:00PM

The Douglas College Health Fair is designed to provide you with educational opportunities that address your overall health and wellbeing and to challenge you to take action and make a positive change(s) in your life.  College departments, student groups and community health organizations come together to help create a healthier campus of well-informed students and employees.

Health Tickets will once again be used this year. You will be required to either learn something (e.g. top 5 risks for male cancers) or be assessed (e.g. BMI) at each booth to get your ticket validated. The more times your ticket is validates the more draw entries for the grand prizes.
