Health expo emphasizes wellness activities

The emphasis will be on healthy lifestyles and entertainment during the annual Health, Wellness and Fitness Expo 2015 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on March 14 at Ohio University-Chillicothe’s Shoemaker Center.

The event is free and open to the public. Door prizes will be given throughout the day.

Free health tests and screenings will be available such as cholesterol, blood sugar, fat analysis, blood pressure, Alzheimer’s disease, bone density, derma scan, dental, glaucoma and scoliosis, as well as oxygen saturation and massages.

Special guest will be Beth Siracuse, current national level physical fitness figure competitor.  Entertainment will be provided by the local fitness and dance studio centers

“This annual event always draws a large 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 Kim McKimmy. “It underscores our commitment to providing the type of programming and worksite health initiative that benefit campus and community members in a meaningful way.”
