Health Fair hits the Quad

The University of La Verne Health Fair presented a wide variety of health organizations in the quad on Wednesday, Feb. 17, to promote health awareness as a part of Black History Month. Ebony Williams was the head student coordinator of this event. The Office of Housing and Residential Life and the African American Student Alliance helped organize the event. The Quad was full of booths that gave information to students on health, diet and spirituality. ULV student Glennda Bivens said that the health fair was “very informative.”  Bivens also added that her favorite booth was Wild Earth, where Catherine Castruita (right), massage therapist, brought organic products from the spa in downtown La Verne. Marco Valenzuela (left), resident coordinator, and Veronica Ramirez (middle), program coordinator, showed interest in Castrutia’s products and received her health advice. A chiropractor was present for students who had questions; he was busy with students throughout the entire event. Bivens said that she was hoping to speak with the chiropractor about her back problems.  She then settled for the Student Health Center, which gave her the information she needed. To assist students not only in physical, but also in spiritual matters, the Campus Ministry also attended the Health Fair. / photo by Gloria Diaz
