TAMUC Public Health Students Host 2021 Student Healthfest

Public health students in the Department of Health and Human Performance at A&M-Commerce recently planned and executed the 2021 TAMUC Student Healthfest, which was hosted virtually on YouTube. The event aimed to promote wellness amongst A&M-Commerce students and the campus community by increasing awareness and access to available university resources.

Elizabeth Wachira, Ph.D., assistant professor and director of the public health program, said event feedback revealed that participants found the presentation to be valuable and engaging. Many reported they would attend such an event each semester.

“As we mobilize to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic, access to accurate and easy-to-understand information is crucial,” Wachira said. “Our campus community offers numerous resources to support the health and wellbeing of our students. The Healthfest, similar to the four-week COVID-19 talk series hosted by public health students last fall, adds to this wealth of knowledge and increases access to these resources.”
