Health Stop triumphs at Agfest

The Faculty of Health's, Health Stop program proved again to be a popular attraction at Agfest for 2015. Agfest visitors and their children were able to engage in interactive activities and have direct contact with pharmacists, exercise physiologists, dietitians, diabetic educators and GPs.

 Agfest is a key event on Tasmania's annual calendar and this year the University of Tasmania worked in partnership with organisers to present a bigger and better presence than ever before, with around 8000 Agfest patrons visiting the University's marquee over the three days.

Health Stop included popular activities including medical demonstrations where visitors were able to get their fingers plastered by students. Patrons were also able to get their blood pressure tested, make hand creams and get invaluable health advice. Inside the marquee, patrons were able to gather information and guidance on study options and collect fun freebies.
