Healthy, hands-on fun: Health for All Festival set for Sunday, Nov. 4

Come and celebrate Memorial’s second annual Health for All Festival! We take research out of the university and into the community with family-friendly interactive exhibits, games and activities. Kids get to have fun learning about topics in health science while parents or caregivers get the chance to meet the research teams working to make healthcare better for everyone in Newfoundland and Labrador. This year, we’re also offering half-hour sessions where you canjoin in an Indigenous round dance, connect with other new moms and discuss what the research says about helping parents, especially mothers, to be the best that they can be.
