Proviso East HS Health Fair on March 27 and 28 Brings Together PEHS Students, Community Agencies and Loyola University Students to Promote Health!
The theme for this year's annual health fair is "Eat Right, Live Right, Feel Right." The goal is to give young people the knowledge and skills they need to make healthy choices in a fun and engaging way.
During this two-day event, Proviso East High School (PEHS) students visit interactive booths set up in the gym during their scheduled PE, ROTC, or freshman health classes. Loyola nursing, dietetic, social work and medical students, as well as community agencies, staff the booths.
For the past several years, PEHS students from freshman health and driver’s education classes have worked alongside Loyola students to highlight different adolescent health topics.
The popularity of the annual health fair has grown over the years. This year we expect nearly 50 booths with more than 20 community partners to be represented. Virtually all PEHS students visit the health fair and then provide feedback on what they have learned.
