Mount Aloysius College will host a Health Expo to encourage students and community members to spring into action as the weather warms up. The event will be held on March 21st from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. in Cosgrave Student Center.
The Health Expo will offer something for all ages, from the physically fit to those trying to keep up with New Year’s resolutions. Demonstrations will include Pilates exercise, great nutrition guides, meditation and calming techniques, home remedies and even a weight lifting demo!
Adult Mount Aloysius Physical Therapy Assistant student, Jackie Horvath is spearheading the expo. “As a past professional marathoner, I know the importance of being active and understanding proper nutrition,” she said. “My intention here is to really spread the word about the importance of an equally balanced life: physically, mentally, and spiritually.”
The Mount Aloysius College Health Expo is open to students and community members. Executive Director of Mission Integration and Community Outreach at the College, Christina Koren, emphasizes the importance of treating your body right. “We are grateful for the work Jackie, her faculty and her fellow Physical Therapy Assistant students are doing for all of us. This event,” Koren emphasized, “shines a spotlight on the great efforts that Mount Aloysius College is making to improve the health and wellness of our students and our community, and sharing the link between nutrition, physical activity, and learning.”
