AdventHealth Manchester held its annual CREATION Health themed Health Fair at EKU Manchester Campus on April 26, 2019.
The Health Fair was free and open to the public, and offered free health screenings, give-a-ways, door prizes, and information for every family member’s health.
“We are excited to offer various community events like the health fair to the residents of Clay County,” said Crystal Day, Director of Marketing at the hospital. “In today’s world, knowledge is power, and with the information offered at events like this, we learn how to live healthier lives and take care of ourselves.”
At the fair, participants learned about heart health, women’s health, diabetes control and prevention, smoking cessation, stress management, maintaining a healthy weight, exercise and fitness and much more.
Health screenings such as blood pressure and blood sugar etc. were done on the spot by the hospital team. “Encouraging people to get screened and lead a healthier lifestyle is a very important part of what we do,” said Day. “The earlier you know if there are any problems, the earlier they can be addressed.”
There were many wonderful door prizes to be won that day. The hospital would like to thank the following for participating in the health fair:
