Immunity is Community Health Fair (2023)


The 2023 "Immunity is Community" Health Fair was a free and public event offering holistic wellness resources and information to help Crawford County residents feel rooted in their community again, and supported in their post-pandemic healing.

This initiative was a collaboration with my Allegheny College colleague Dr. Becky Dawson (Global Health | Biology), and various community partners and sponsors. We also received grant funding from the Allegheny College Network for Community Engaged Learning and the Crawford Heritage Foundation.

Wellness Education

The comic book on health [sample page on the right] was supervised by Dr. Dawson, and myself, with publishing layouts and expertise provided by Prof. Doug Luman (Computer Science). Allegheny College students played a major role in writing and illustrating the comic book. Studio Art and Biology major Allison Crouch ('23) did the illustrations. And our football team's offensive lineman + Global Health major Carson Messemer ('24), scripted the panels. The comic book will be handed out for free to the "Immunity is Community" health fair attendees.
