In recognition of World Aids Day, today 1st December 2016, at the H. Lavity Stoutt Community College, the campus health services in partnership with the counselling services of the Student Services Division of the College provided a healthy choice inspired fair on campus. The health fair came on the heels of numerous health crises affecting the territory, particularly diabetes, cholesterol, domestic violence, cancer, HIV/AIDS and mental health.
The health fair featured health checks and health tips on healthy eating and lifestyle practices. Participants to the fair included representatives from Gender Affairs, BVI Diabetes Association, BVI Community Mental Health, and the BVI Red Cross. Keynote speaker Mr. Tree Alexander, an HIV survivor, motivational speaker and Prison Linkage Specialist shared his story of how he contracted the virus, how he has been able to cope with the stigmatism of having HIV by moving past the discrimination and breaking free of the negativity by changing peoples’ perception. Alexander spared no details as he reflected on his life to the 12th grade students of the Elmore Stoutt High School, faculty, staff and students of the College that quite a few tears flowed from the audience.
The health fair’s purpose was to address some of the crises affecting the community, but more importantly to take action and educate individuals about the health perils in their neighborhoods, surrounding neighborhoods and provide assistance in seeking solutions so that they make the right choices in having a healthy life. The students on campus immediately gravitated to the services available at the health fair which included free HIV/AIDS testing, free blood pressure testing, fasting cholesterol screening, fasting blood sugar screening, height, weight and BMI testing. Although demand surpassed testing supplies with just over 50 individuals being tested, those not tested were still able to walk away with valuable information on healthcare resources and information on healthy lifestyle practices.
