The 5th annual community event featured an array of health and wellness organizations covering services from head to toe. The one day shop for health and wellness embraced a holistic approach showcasing services and products from head to toe. Visitors had the opportunity to ask questions and get advice on prosthetics and orthotics, home health care, personal injury law, hearing aids, vision, dental, chiropractic, family doctors, COPD, fitness training and Pilates, pharmacies, naturopathic medicine, foot care, and much more.
Speaker sessions and booth displays by 35 exhibitors showed visitors how to live well every day. The free fair was set up in 5,600 square feet of space in the hospital’s therapy centre. A silent auction and a 50/50 draw raised funds to help purchase patient care equipment.
Visitors viewed demonstrations, enjoyed product samples, and participated in activities including the hearing checks. Door prizes were awarded to lucky winners throughout the day. The first 100 people visitors received a swag bag donated by Gluckstein Lawyers and filled with items from our event partners.

One tool we can use to stay focused on the plan in 2019 is the Niagara Health Days Calendar. The free calendar features health awareness days, weeks and months. Each month in the calendar is dedicated to one of the health promotion themes related to nationally recognized awareness campaigns. The highlighted dates such as “Bell Let’s Talk Day” or the “Walk For Alzheimer’s” are either promoted by recognized health organizations or recognized in the professional health community.
