The Davie County Chamber and the Davie Family YMCA are pleased to present Healthy Family Day Expo 2015 on Saturday, April 25, 2015 at the Davie Family YMCA, 215 Cemetery Street in Mocksville. The Healthy Family Day Expo runs from 9am to 1pm and is free to the public. This year, we are combining our annual community Health Expo with Healthy Kids Day to create one big event for the whole family! Several vendors of healthy lifestyle products and services along with a lot of fun kid activities will be set up under one roof to offer Davie County residents a convenient one-stop healthy lifestyle information experience.
Sponsored by Wake Forest Baptist Health – Davie Medical Center and Novant Health Medical Center, the Healthy Family Day Expo offers access to important information, direct interaction with a variety of medical service providers as well as fun and healthy activities for kids. Several free health screenings will be offered including blood pressure, stroke screening, hearing assessments, total cholesterol, BMI and much more. With healthcare costs on the rise and interest in personal wellbeing at an all-time high, Health Family Day Expo provides residents with a great opportunity to take positive steps toward improving their health.
Healthy Family Day Expo is a collaborative effort of the Davie Family YMCA and the Davie County Chamber of Commerce to connect our health and wellness businesses and children oriented organizations & businesses directly with our community in an environment that promotes complete health in spirit, mind and body. “Our Healthy Family Day Expo was established as a community service event and provides an opportunity for each organization to serve its members and the Davie community.” said Carolyn McManamy, President of the Davie County Chamber of Commerce.
“The Davie Family Y is committed to healthy living for the entire family. We’re excited to partner with the Davie Chamber to provide resources for the community to learn about wellness options,” shared Christina Moser, Senior Program Director of the Davie Family YMCA. “The first step in any wellness journey is knowledge, and the Healthy Family Day Expo is a great place to gather information about making healthy choices for your whole family.”
