ANC Health Fair

On Tuesday, September 29, in the St. Pius X Parish Hall, the Association for New Canadians hosted its annual Health Fair. The event offered ANC clients an opportunity to learn about a number of health-related topics, including healthy eating and activity, chronic disease prevention and management, sexual health, cervical screening, heart and dental health, mental health and addictions, flu season, healthy child development, among other topics.
The two hour event included participation by a number of health-related groups, including the ANC Diabetic Clinic, Eastern Health, Arthritis Society, Centre for Life, Fetal Alcohol Syndrome Disorder NL, Canadian Cancer Society, NL Smoker’s Helpline, Daybreak, Brighter Futures, and Choices for Youth. At the end of the day, everyone in attendance enjoyed a healthy lunch and took part in a draw for some great prizes! Please visit our "Gallery" to view photos from the day.
