coc_bmwAs the kick-off to a semester-long series of events focused on healthy lifestyle topics, College of the Canyons will host its annual Body Mind Wellness Healthy Lifestyle Resource Fair on Wednesday, March 2.

The event will begin at 11:30 a.m. in the COC Honor Grove, located on the college’s Valencia campus.

More than 20 campus groups and local businesses will have information booths featured at the event, with a DJ from 97.1 KAMP-FM radio also scheduled to provide live entertainment.

Attendees who are able to visit 10 resource tables will receive free sandwiches provided by Subway.

In the weeks that follow the Healthy Lifestyle Resource Fair, the college will host a series of informational seminar sessions focused on a wide range of health-related topics.

“Our expert-led seminars provide practical information to motivate and empower all of us to eat well, be physically active, think positively, live mindfully, take the time for leisure, and build safe, supportive relationships, all so we can be healthy, happy and successful in school, work, sport, and life,” said Sheri Barke, COC Sports and Wellness Dietician.

Included in the lineup of upcoming seminars is a two-day “Play to Reduce Stress” event on April 19 and 21, in which attendees will be able to partake in a number of relaxing activities including coloring, dancing and using hula hoops. The event will focus on how to manage life and school stress by taking time to “play like a kid” again.

Barke will also be presenting the seminar “Nutrition 101: Separating Fact From Fiction” on March 2, during which attendees will receive practical advice on how to eat in order to look, feel and perform at their best.
