Ohio University Southern will host its “Love Your Body” event for the campus and community on Thursday. The health fair and educational event has been held each February since 2011. It is designed to encourage those who attend to consider self-care and personal well-being.

The “Love Your Body” health fair and educational event has been hosted each February at Ohio Southern for the past eight years to encourage participants to consider self-care and personal well-being. The event is open to students as well as to the public from 10 AM to 2 PM in the Mains Rotunda of the Riffe Center.

Mary Ann Wymer, coordinator of non-traditional student recruitment and services, said “Love Your Body” provides a fun and informative way for students to learn the importance of health – physical, emotional and mental well-being and the well-being of their spirit. “Health and wellness are essential to everyone’s life and for a healthy community. It is hard to meet daily demands without energy and an active mind,” Wymer said.

Wymer, the event organizer, said bringing students, community and health organizations together benefits everyone. “It gives service providers an opportunity to learn about the concerns and needs of Ohio Southern students,” Wymer said, giving them a greater understanding of community health needs.

“Love Your Body” is hosted by the Ohio University Southern Student Resource Commons and Office of Diversity and Inclusion.
