This is the first year that the Immigrant Welcome Centre of Campbell River is hosting a large-scale health fair on North Vancouver Island on Saturday.

Welcoming everyone – this free event has something fun for everyone!

The Executive Director of the Immigrant Welcome Centre Rachel Blaney said; “There are many ways to live healthier. We understand this and that’s why we organize the Diversity Health fair to alert people at the importance of improving their health and interacting with the great variety of health services in our community.”

There is the physical aspect of health, but there is more to it than just eating right and not smoking. The fact is that health also includes taking care of oneself on an emotional level, daily diet and exercise. This event is a fun way to broaden people’s horizons on how different ways can work together to promote both physical and emotional well-being of individuals.

“We all have only one life and it is our responsibility to take care of ourselves,” Blaney said.

Open from 10 to 12, no admission fee and a lot of amazing prizes there is no reason to miss this great event on Aug. 13.
