AUK Hosts 7th Annual Health Fair

For the seventh year, the American University of Kuwait (AUK) hosted the Annual Health Fair in its Salmiya campus on November 15th. The full day popular exhibition was sponsored by the Career Services and Wellness Center and hosted a variety of health and wellness participating companies including, gyms, healthy restaurants, organic product companies, clinics, spas, hospitals, and health related societies.

During the event, participating companies provided health education literature and information about mental health issues. Clinics provided free checkups for teeth, eyes, skin, blood pressure, and diabetes. Food companies provided free samples of healthy foods and drinks. Gyms provided free trials of exercise equipment. In addition, doctors and nutritionists on site provided free consultations.

The Health Fair provided students with knowledge of how to utilize resources in Kuwait to create and maintain a healthier lifestyle. The five sponsoring companies, Al-Yasra Foods, Firin Gluten-Free Bakery, Fit Football, Hassan's Optics, and Maidan Clinic, presented memberships, vouchers, and other interesting prizes in an effort to encourage and promote such lifestyle choices.

The fair provided a great opportunity for the AUK community to learn about the various health & wellness companies in Kuwait. Other participating companies included Casper & Gambini's, Health Stop Café and Grill, Kuwait Counseling Center, Media Committee from Kuwait Dental Association, Paintball Kuwait, Six Senses Spa, Kefan Optics, Kuwait United Medical Projects Company, Diet Center, and Landmark Group.

"This year's health fair was a huge success" said Mr. Jason R. Sullivan, the Assistant Director of the Career Services and Wellness center at AUK. "We had a great student turnout and each company was very well represented by eager and friendly staff. We are already looking forward to next year's event and all the opportunities to work with such professional companies".
