SLU PT Students Enjoy Engaging with the Community at the North County Back 2 School Fair
SLU PT students Brea Masching and Christina Vivit (DPT Class of 2019) were invited to do a table presentation at the back to school health fair in North County on Thursday, August 10, 2017.
The Community Resource Fair - Back to School Edition is an annual event that includes free health screenings, a backpack giveaway event, children's activities, and workshops from community partners.
Christina and Brea presented together and made handouts on injury prevention in sports for kids and teens, the importance of mental health, concussions in the pediatric population, playground safety, and adaptive sports for kids with disabilities.
Pictured below are some of the handouts they gave out to the community.
They ran out of handouts not even halfway through the event! People were really interested in the information - especially injury prevention, adaptive sports, and mental health.
