Public Health Community Outreach Booth
The Community Outreach Booth travels to events across Niagara from mid-May to the end of August. Trained students and volunteers help to increase public awareness and knowledge on specific health topics through interactive activities. Resources, giveaways and free sunscreen are available at the booth.
This is no charge for the Community Outreach Booth. Event organizers can select which topics they would like at their event.
