The Student Health Advisory Council (SHAC) will hold its third annual Health and Wellness Fair from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Oct. 3 in Gallagher Student Center and on the Xavier Yard.
The objective of the fair is to promote general health among the student body.
It also seeks to increase student awareness of the organizations involved in health and wellness at Xavier. Some of the features of this year's fair include injury evaluation from current Xavier athletic training students, insight on a variety of wellness topics provided by nursing students, fitness awareness courtesy of the Recreational Sports department and a variety of presenters addressing current mental health issues.
One of the main components introduced for the fair this year is an "Eat Well Market" where local businesses will showcase and promote foods that contribute to healthy living.
The "Eat Well Market" features several sponsors including Whole Foods, Costco, Green Bean Delivery, Dove Chocolate, Xavier Dining and several farmers from the local community.
The Health and Wellness Fair is one of the premier events for SHAC, which serves as a liaison between Xavier Wellness Services and the student population.
Kyle Hickey, president of SHAC, says the 25-member council works to improve relations between Wellness Services and students by "gaining student feedback on services they've received, meeting with administration, promoting Wellness Services and by hosting events relating to health and wellness."
For those interested in becoming a member of SHAC, applications are typically accepted in the spring semester of each school year.
However, freshmen, transfer students and first-year graduate students will have the opportunity to apply later in the fall semester in order to ensure that all areas of the student body are consistently represented throughout the school year.
