Radford University To Hold Health Fair at New Location

Posted: Updated:

Radford University will hold it's annual health fair today.

The event is normally held in the spring, but the university wanted to get a head start on getting students to form healthy habits early this year.

Health educator, Sarah Gayle, says, "If we start now especially when the weather is nice, people are more motivated to get outside and do things, maybe try new experiences."

The fair is also being held at a new location. Over 30 vendors will be set up at the Bonnie Plaza. There will be on-campus and community groups at the event. The university is adding some outdoor activities to the event as well, including rock climbing and a dunk tank.

The fair is open to the public. Gayle says getting the community involved was very important to the staff. She says, "The more people that are talking about wellness, whether its here on campus or its in the community, the more its going to spread."

The fair will run from noon until 2pm.
