Peninsula Regional Medical Center and the Wicomico County Board of Education invite everyone on the Delmarva Peninsula to join them for HealthFest: An event for all ages, on Saturday, April 5, 2014.
This year’s event, a showcase of healthy exhibits and health screenings, is free and open to the public at James M. Bennett High School on College Avenue in Salisbury. HealthFest: An event for all ages will be held from 7:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Over 25 free health screenings, available the day of the event and without pre-registration. The health screenings, performed by Peninsula Regional Medical Center healthcare specialists and other area healthcare providers, will be available to anyone looking to find out how healthy they actually are, and to learn what they can do to lead an even healthier and more productive lifestyle.
At various times during the event, HealthFest will also offer participants free “ask the pharmacist” advice, a therapy dog demonstration, a fun walk, a rock climbing wall, moon bounce, fire engine and ambulance tours, a health corner for kids, and interactive demonstrations in, Zumba, chair aerobics, ballroom dancing and healthy cooking.
The da Vinci Surgical System Robot will again be on exhibit, giving anyone interested a “hands on” opportunity to test drive the robot and see, up close, how the technology is used at PRMC during revolutionary cutting edge surgeries. Additionally, the Strollin Colon, an inflatable, large walk-through educational exhibit designed to teach people about the benefits of colorectal cancer screening, will be on display.
Participants will also have the opportunity to visit with about 50 exhibitors and vendors who are also joining HealthFest with valuable information on their services.
