HomePorts, Inc., in partnership with the Kent County Health Department, the University of Maryland Shore Regional Health, and Kent County Parks and Recreation, will hold the annual Health and Wellness Expo on Thursday, October 14 from 8 a.m. to noon at the Kent County Community Center in Worton.
The expo, which is free and open to the public, is the largest held in this area. The event will highlight over 75 community resources offering the latest health, wellness and safety information. It is a one-stop opportunity for busy individuals and families of all ages. Features include free health screenings, free morning refreshments, flu shots, over 75 exhibitors, both non-profit organizations and local businesses, a printed program, and transportation.
The center’s gym will be transformed into a large exhibit hall, with tables staffed by professionals offering a wide variety of information and guidance on local services. To request sponsorship or exhibitor information, contact Chrissy Nelson at 410-708-4938 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for exhibitor sign-up is September 15.
“People of all ages benefit from this event. It’s the perfect place to find answers to health questions and learn about local services. Everyone will come away with practical information, I guarantee, and will be better prepared to manage their own health and their family’s health,” said Courtney Sjostrom, HomePorts’ Board of Directors President.
