Senior Wellness Fair

CHAMP Wellness & Resource Fairs - Partnership with the County of Santa Clara Department of Adult & Aging Services:

In Fall 2010 CHAMP faculty piloted a model for interdisciplinary learning by developing a wellness fair formembers of the Timpany Center. This was expanded to the larger community in Fall 2011 by partnering with the County of Santa Clara Department of Adult & Aging Services. The fairs are held annually in the Fall in a variety of locations. A few hundred graduate and undergraduate students from eight academic departments have participated in the fairs over the years to provide wellness education, screenings, and physical activity demonstrations to seniors. The fairs provide excellent opportunities for students to practice their communication skills and engage with seniors in the community, and learn about the resources available to address the myriad issues that affect healthy aging in diverse populations. Our experiences with the wellness fairs are documented in a 2015 peer reviewed publication titled “Health Promotion Practice and Interprofessional Education in Aging: Senior Wellness Fairs,” in the Journal of Gerontology & Geriatrics Education.
