Travelling Health Fair

Once a year the Travelling Health Fair provides you with information, awareness, self-assessment, and personalized consultation on health topics of importance to you.  Brought to you by the Health, Wellbeing, and Benefits team in partnership with the UBC Pharmacists Clinic, the event is available at no cost to UBC faculty, staff, postdoctoral fellows, and student staff. 

Upcoming February 2023: Diabetes

For the 2023 Travelling Health Fair, we will take a comprehensive approach to diabetes prevention and the health and wellbeing of UBC faculty, staff, postdoctoral fellows, and student staff.

Diabetes is one of the most common chronic conditions affecting people living in Canada. Over eleven million Canadians live with diabetes or prediabetes. Chances are you or someone you know is affected and may not know it. Awareness and knowledge are critical to reducing your risk and managing diabetes.

As part of this free health fair, you will receive the following confidential services:  

  • Education about blood sugars, diabetes, and what it all means
  • Measurement of weight, waist, blood pressure, and blood sugar levels (Hemoglobin A1c)
  • Education about diabetes risk factors and a personalized risk assessment
  • Interpretation of results and an individualized action plan to prevent or reduce diabetes risk

Total appointment time: 20 minutes per participant.

Who should attend: everyone! Whether you are currently living with a chronic condition such as diabetes or want to learn about your risk factors, there is something for everyone at this fair. It is never too early to think about prevention.
