Zaytuna Services Society and Simon Fraser University –
Health Science Students, under the guidance of Dr. Paola Ardiles, hosted a Wellness Fair event at the Guildford Recreation Center in Surrey. This event took place on March 15, 2019. The Wellness Fair is a community project with the goal of connecting the newcomer community to healthcare agencies and resources.
The Wellness Fair bridges the gaps between the newcomer population and the health care system by:
* Empowering newcomers with health knowledge that will help them access and utilize the health services within their communities.
* Connecting the newcomer communities with healthcare resources and services to establish a long-term relationship with healthcare providers.
* Enabling newcomers with the necessary tools needed to navigate the healthcare system in BC.
The Wellness Fair offers a platform for health care agencies to promote and educate the newcomer population about their programs and services.
This is a free event open to the public with the focus on the newcomer populations.
