CHAMP faculty invites you to visit the Senior Wellness Fair co-hosted this year by CHAMP, CommUniverCity and the Santa Clara County Department of Adult & Aging Services (DAAS).
When: October 24, 2012 from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Where: Roosevelt Community Center, 901 E. Santa Clara Street (between 19th and 21st)
Students and faculty from Health Science, Kinesiology, Nursing, Nutrition, Occupational Therapy, Psychology, and Social Work are participating to provide health and wellness screenings, education, and physical activity demonstrations to seniors from the East San Jose neighborhood.
We invite you to come and support your students and faculty, and learn about how your department might participate in future CHAMP and CommUniverCity activities.
Remember healthy aging is for everyone – if you aren’t older already, soon enough you will be! And you’ll learn about important resources available in the community to promote healthy aging for us all. So come by and check us out on October 24th at the Roosevelt Center!
The mission of the Center is to promote healthy aging among multicultural and diverse populations living in the San Francisco Bay area. With faculty affiliates from all academic disciplines at SJSU, the Center facilitates interdisciplinary aging research, education and training, and strategic partnerships with community-based organizations working with older adults.
CHAMP is housed in the College of Applied Sciences and Arts which is home to applied and professional disciplines serving dynamic societal needs and dedicated to promoting a healthy, ethical, and enlightened global community through innovative application of knowledge and scholarship.
