On April 23, Prep's Guidance Department presented Fairfield Prep's fourth annual Wellness Fair. Presenters from Fairfield University's School of Nursing and Counseling and Psychological Services Center, as well as representatives from the Norma Pfriem Breast Center, helped to raise awareness on crucial issues in areas of health and wellness in an interactive format. Additionally, Mrs. Lisa Sheehan P'19 presented about the development of mindfulness.

The annual Wellness Fair was open to the entire community and served hundreds of Prep students of all classes as they learned in an interactive format about skin cancer, breast and testicular cancer, vaping, stress reduction, mindfulness, texting and driving, and the effects of drugs and alcohol.

Many thanks to our presenters for their dedication to wellness and for their willingness to share their knowledge Thanks also to Prep's faculty for accompanying and encouraging their students to participate in promoting experiences in wellness in support of the positive growth of the young men of Fairfield Prep.
