Diversity Health Fair welcomes newcomers

Immigrants and current residents can celebrate the mosaic of our culture

In its three years of existence, the Terrace Diversity Health Fair has grown into the largest event of its kind in the northwest and an exciting and dynamic multicultural event.

This year’s Diversity Health Fair on May 25 will focus on the theme of Prevention of Chronic Illness while keeping visitors active and entertained.

A Healthy Cooking Demonstration will feature local chefs who will prepare ethnic dishes with the help of a local dietitian.

Move It! With Zumba, Bhangra and Tai Chi will get hearts pumping and feet moving with interactive exercise from a variety of cultures. This free event also will feature information booths about local health services and on-site health screenings.

The Fair aims to provide newcomers and immigrants with access to a wide range of health and wellness resources Terrace has to offer. Adopting a healthy or balanced diet, controlling weight, and adopting strategies to enjoy daily physical activities are the best steps to prevent health related ailments and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Visitors will have access to a great deal of information, some in a variety of languages from more than 30 health and wellness exhibitors. For more details on the fair, see it under Community Calendar on page 20.
