Logan County businesses and organizations are invited to bring their health-related offerings to the 2018 Wellness Expo on Saturday, February 17 from 9am – 1pm at the Lincoln Park District. The event is expected to bring over 600 community members together in celebration of healthy behaviors.
Plans for the 2018 Wellness Expo include free inflatables for children of all ages, a variety of free health screenings, recycling opportunities, interactive exhibits, great prizes, giveaways, cooking demonstration, and much more. Healthcare career information and a healthy kids cooking activity will be new to the event this year.
“Go, Slow and Whoa Your Way to Health” is the theme of this year’s event building on the Coordinated Approach to Child Health (CATCH) messaging that is currently in over 15 area schools. The “Go, Slow, and Whoa” terminology teaches students about different types of foods that should be eaten all the time, sometimes and only every once awhile.
“A booth at the health fair is a great opportunity to make your services and message known. We are looking forward to another successful event that encourages healthy choices in Logan County,” said Angela Stoltzenburg, director of the Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital Community Health Collaborative.
A limited number of tables are available. Contact Susan Tracy at the Logan County Department of Public Health at 217-735-2317 ext. 235 for more information or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to request a vendor registration form.
The 2018 Wellness Expo is presented in partnership by the Lincoln Park District, Logan County Department of Public Health and the Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital Community Health Collaborative.
