Athens, Ga. – Dawg Gone Healthy Day, sponsored by the University Health Center, will take place on Wednesday, April 18 from noon to 3 p.m. on the Tate Plaza. The festival will offer games, activities, prizes, music, free food and drinks.
The festival’s focus is to increase student awareness of health issues that affect them now. Every student group associated with the Health Center has teamed up with the health promotion department to organize an event that focuses on healthy choices, healthy living and healthy fun.
