As part of its annual tradition, the Health and Wellness Center at AUBMC hosted its yearly Wellness Fair on Wednesday, April 11, 2018, titled "Map Your Way to Wellness". A multidisciplinary team of health professionals from diverse departments at AUB and AUBMC were distributed over 20 booths at West Hall, AUB. Specialists provided participants with valuable information on a variety of topics that encourage leading a positive healthy lifestyle including financial planning, mental health, healthy eating and exercise, smoking cessation, general medical advice, and stress management.
More than 300 participants received rapid body assessments, health recommendations and educational material from doctors, nurses, dietitians, physiotherapists, and other healthcare specialists. They also engaged in various activities such as screening questionnaires, health-related jeopardy, and crosswords, ergonomics and safety demonstrations, fitness exercises, in addition to healthy snacking and a live cooking demo. Several prizes were won during and after the fair including a ticket to France.
