Nassau, Bahamas - Taking responsibility for one’s health choices was the aim of the 7th annual Bahamas Technical and Vocational Institution health and wellness fair held on March 17th at BTVI.  The Student Affairs department rolled health and fitness into one as exhibitors provided information, demonstrations and samples of their products and/or services.

BTVI’s Dean of Student Affairs, Racquel Bethel, said the team’s approach to wellness is a holistic one that first targets students, staff and faculty, but is also extends to the public.

“We recognize our role as a community partner. Although we are in the business of technical training, we recognize that a healthy body is important for a healthy mind,” said Ms. Bethel.

Attendees had the opportunity to have health screenings, in addition to gaining additional knowledge on family planning, nutrition, physical fitness, naturopathic medicine, insurance, energy and the environment, and more.

“Our vendors gave tips on how to prevent disease and maintain a healthy lifestyle. We do not want people to compartmentalize health. There are a lot of elements that complement each other. There is interconnectivity between body, mind and spirit,” stated Ms. Bethel.
