REF NO.: 9

SUBJECT: Hands-on fun at Health for All Festival

DATE: Oct. 31

Bring the whole family to celebrate Memorial University’s second annual Health for All Festival!

The Health for All Festival is an opportunity for research teams and members of the public to engage and learn from one another with interactive exhibits, games and other activities.

Kids can have fun learning about topics in health science while parents or caregivers meet the research teams working to make health care better for everyone in Newfoundland and Labrador.

Sessions include Indigenous round dancing and discussions about what the research says about helping parents, especially mothers, to be the best that they can be.

The Health for All Festival takes place on Sunday, Nov. 4, from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. at the St. John’s Farmer’s Market at 245 Freshwater Rd. 

The event is organized by the Newfoundland and Labrador SUpport for People and Patient-Oriented Research and Trials Unit, a unit housed within Memorial’s Faculty of Medicine.
