According to Elena Favela, event organizer and counselor in the college’s Department of Counseling and Student Life, the fair is intended to provide attendees with opportunities to interact with community organizations and learn about the importance of making sound decisions about healthy living.
“Making healthy choices on a daily basis can be difficult, especially as we try to balance so many aspects of our lives, like work, family, and school,” Favela said.
“The goal of this event is to share information about what is available here in the Anoka community, so students are empowered to make choices that will improve their well being.”
