As part of our community health partnership with Valley Health, we talked today with Mike Wade, chair of Valley Health's Community Wellness Festival to learn details for the event happening on Saturday, February 24, 2024 at Apple Blossom Mall from 10am - 5pm. It is an annual event that has been going on for 30 years and offers a wide range of activities and screenings related to health and wellness.

The festival includes exhibitors from various organizations, providing information and resources for all age groups, from prenatal to senior adults. There are also free and low-cost screenings available, such as blood pressure checks and lab tests. Additionally, there will be fitness and wellness demonstrations, as well as opportunities to learn about volunteer and community engagement.

The festival aims to promote conversations about health and wellness and encourage individuals to follow up with their primary care providers for further guidance. Participants can engage with exhibitors and take home health information while enjoying the variety of activities and swag available.

The festival is funded by the Winchester Medical Center Foundation, which supports initiatives and projects beyond the day-to-day operations of Valley Health.
