UHD’s Fall Health Fair Is Back Nov. 17

The health and wellness of the UHD Community is always a top priority and UHD’s Fall Health Fair is one of the many resources offered to students, faculty and staff. The event makes its comeback from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 17 in the Academic Building Special Events Room (A300).

The biannual tradition hosts opportunities that promote and increase health and wellness awareness to the University Community through education, preventative measures and resources.
