SLU AT Students Conduct Learning Activities and Advocate for the AT Profession at Healthfest
HealthFest, presented this year by Coventry Health Care, is an annual event held in November at the Saint Louis Science Center. Established in 2003, it is a one-day event featuring educational booths from a variety of area health professionals and health-related organizations. They offer free information, health screenings for all ages, giveaways, and more! HealthFest's mission is to provide education to visitors/families about current issues and research, information about services available to the community, and introductions to careers in health-related fields. - See more at: http://www.slsc.org/healthfest#sthash.ozAbWjaj.dpuf
2014 is the 4th straight year that the Saint Louis University Athletic Training Society (SLATS), the SLU AT Student Association, sponsored and staffed a booth at Healthfest.
This year's topic was "Wound Care" where the ALU AT Students taught children and their families about universal precautions, bandaging and the AT profession in general.
Special thanks to the following SLU AT Students that participated in Healthfest:
