On Wednesday Sep. 27, Fresno City College will host the second annual Ram Health Fair, where 40 health-related vendors will showcase free services to help influence positive and healthy habits among students and staff.

The event will take place in the University Mall by the library from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. with free services for the event that include vaccination, Women, Infant and Children(WIC) services, Narcan Distributions, Blood Pressure checks and HIV/Hepatitis C testings and more.

Groups that will be there include, United Health Care, IQ Vision, Central California, Pregnancy Care Center, Valley Fitness and many others will attend the event.

According to Lili Goishi-Bessy, Fresno City Colleges Student Health Service Coordinator, the idea of the event is to help students make positive health choices and know about the community health resources available to them, according to

The event will also showcase more of a diverse stream of health related services for students that focus on specific wellness and health related issues.

These include services from Tower Yoga, Black Wellness and Prosperity Center/African American Coalition, Cultiva La Salud, and Tzu Chi Mobile Clinic, Fresno Economic Opportunities Commission (EOC) and the LGBTQ+ Resource Center.

Goshi-Bessy, Fresno City Colleges Student Health Service Coordinator wants students to “find it beneficial and meeting their needs.”

Last year’s event had about 50 different vendors compared to the 45 registered this time around, according to Goshi-Bessy.

The registry for the event is still open, so more may be coming to the event.

Health and Service is also administering a student survey at the Health Fair for student feedback to help determine how successful they were for providing health resources that are beneficial to the needs of students.

Sarah Hernandez, Opinion Editor
Sarah Hernandez was born in Clovis, California in the year 2003, but has been raised in Fresno her whole life and is on her second year at Fresno City College. She is currently studying and majoring in Journalism. A little bit about Sarah, is that when she was about ten years old, she never really paid attention in class and found a love for writing. No matter if it was a story she came up with in her head or a random thought, she simply grabbed her journal to write. At times getting the journal taken away from her, but that never stopping her from writing on whatever she could find.  Getting herself in trouble, but knowing that writing was something she always had a peak interests in. A fun fact about Sarah is that she has taken up photography recently for her past time to act as a growing hobby of hers, but she never stops writing. A little fun fact about her is that she is an avid Marvel fan and has seen a good majority of the films, plus she also loves graphic designs and draws inspiration from various shows and movies that she indulges in. Sarah’s ultimate goal in life is to be a free-lance public relations worker and to travel the world, visiting various countries like Japan and Germany while writing about her travels. She hopes the Rampage will help her get a toe in on what journalism is all about and help broaden her horizon.
