Black Medical Students Association Health Fair
April 30 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The Ezra Marfo Cancer Foundation and Black Donors Save Lives is joining The University of Alberta’s Black Medical Students’ Association (BMSA) to host a Health Fair on Sunday April 30, 2023 for the Black communities in and around Edmonton.
The event is set to take place at the Castle Downs Family YMCA and features a variety of booths providing health and wellness information of high relevance to the African, Caribbean and Black (ACB) community. This year’s theme is ‘Preventative Health’, with a focus on educating attendees how to stay healthy and detect health problems early on, before they cause other issues or become more difficult to treat.
The free and family-friendly event will provide critical health information in a fun and engaging stress-free environment, but will also highlight the importance of representation in healthcare. Additionally, BMSA members will be on hand to mentor ACB youth about pursuing medicine as a career path.
