PRMC Healthfest Health Fair Returns to Bennett High School

SALISBURY, Md.- Peninsula Regional Medical Center and the Wicomico County Board of Education invite everyone on the Delmarva Peninsula to join them for HealthFest: An event for all ages, on Saturday, April 6.

This year's event, a showcase of healthy exhibits and health screenings, is free and open to the public at James M. Bennett High School on College Avenue in Salisbury.  HealthFest: An event for all ages will be held from 7:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Over 25 free health screenings, available the day of the event and without pre-registration.  The health screenings, performed by Peninsula Regional Medical Center healthcare specialists and other area healthcare providers, will be available to anyone looking to find out how healthy they actually are, and to learn what they can do to lead an even healthier and more productive lifestyle. 

Digital and PSA screenings for prostate cancer requires advance registration.  Men looking to participate may call (410) 543-7139 on March 4, 5, 7 or 8, from 8 a.m. until noon to pre-register. A limited number of appointments will be available.  Blood glucose and cholesterol screenings will also be available and require a 12-hour fast by participants.

At various times during the event, HealthFest will also offer participants free child safety seat checks, a fun walk, a K-9 demonstration, a rock climbing wall, fire engine and ambulance tours, a health corner for kids, and interactive demonstrations in cheer and dance, Zumba, chair aerobics, juggling and healthy cooking. 

The daVinci Surgical System Robot will be on exhibit, giving anyone interested a "hands on" opportunity to test drive the robot and see, first-hand, how the technology is used at PRMC during revolutionary cutting edge surgeries.  Additionally, Mega Heart, the world's largest, inflatable walk-through heart exhibit, will be at HealthFest to provide everyone an interactive view of how the human heart functions. 

Nearly 50 additional exhibitors and vendors will also join HealthFest with valuable information on their services.

For more information on HealthFest: An event for all ages, a map and a complete list of screenings and demonstrations, please visit PRMC's website at www.peninsula.org or call (410) 543-7137.
