Healthly lifestyle promoted in workshop

By Jason Middlebrooks/south campus editor

South Campus will host an African-American Health Expo 10 a.m.-2 p.m. May 6 in SHPE with a free, pre-event breakfast at 8 a.m.

The goal of the event is to show students and the community the importance of living a healthy lifestyle.

“They want to make sure that community members are aware of the different types of health resources,” TR communications manager Reginald Lewis said. “Health is a key thing we want to stress.”

The expo will feature workshops, seminars, cooking demonstrations and health screenings, which attendees can review with health coaches.

The coaches can help guide attendees on managing their health needs.

“[The Expo] will have individuals from community organizations providing information,” Lewis said.

The pre-event breakfast will focus on “Breaking the Cycle of Disparities,” which is sponsored by the Moncrief Cancer Institute.

The breakfast will focus on eliminating health disparities and promote health equity.
