Health Fair FAQ's

The Department of Medical Education, Department of Psychiatry, Office of Outreach and Community Engagement (OOCE) and the Office of Admissions, along with Foster School of Medicine students, have worked together to develop the content for each workshop and will facilitate each presentation.
A virtual health fair consists of multiple workshops that participants can tune into on their computers from the comfort and safety of their own home in order to learn more about a specific topic relevant to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The virtual health fair can be offered as a single workshop or a series of related workshops and may be offered in both English or Spanish based on the audience and preference of the host organization.

The virtual health fairs are intended for a broad audience. We can organize a virtual health fair for a variety of community organizations, students, educators, etc.  Based on the intended audience, we can tailor the content and scope of information to the anticipated participants. 

Objectives: Upon completion of the virtual health fair, the participant should be able to:

  • Exhibit increased awareness regarding SARS-CoV-2 / COVID-19.
  • Learn how to harness SARS-CoV-2 / COVID-19 resources available to the El Paso community.
  • Understand the importance of SARS-CoV-2 / COVID-19 protective measures and testing.
  • Overview of SARS-2/COVID-19
  • Wellness and Stress Management in an Epidemic
  • Testing for COVID-19: Testing types, importance and how/where to get tested
