Why There are Bugs on Display at the Health Fair

May 28, 2015

This morning, FDACS-DPI employees are encouraged to attend the Health and Safety Fair at the UF Hilton Conference Center in Gainesville.

HealthFairDPI The fair, which is open to the public, continues until noon. Albert will be there until 11:30 and you can have your photo taken with the venerable US mascot as you visit with health care professionals from UF Health.


Experts from the FDACS Division of Plant Industry are there, too. They’ll be delighted to discuss and show you a variety of spiders, scorpions, mosquitoes and other creatures that might impact human health.

HealthFairApiaryStaffers from our Apiary section are manning a booth that’s all about bees — certainly an important contributor to our health.
