The emphasis will be on healthy lifestyles and entertainment during the Health, Wellness and Fitness Expo 2014 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, March 15, at Ohio University-Chillicothe’s Shoemaker Center. The event always draws a large crowd, with approximately 2,000 individuals enjoying last year’s event.
The expo is free and open to the public.
Free health tests and screenings will be available for health concerns such as cholesterol, blood sugar, fat analysis, blood pressure, dental, glaucoma and scoliosis, as well as oxygen saturation and massages.
The We Care Ronald McDonald medical van, Berger Hospital and a life flight helicopter will also be on site.
“This annual event always draws an enthusiastic crowd and offers an opportunity to provide health screenings for area residents who might not have health insurance or may be unaware of a health concern,” said OU-C staff member Kim McKimmy, a member of OU-C’s Health, Wellness and Safety Committee. “It underscores our commitment to providing the type of programming and worksite health initiative that benefit campus and community members in a meaningful way.”
