Employees at both events were able to have biometric screenings which their measured glucose, total cholesterol, LDL/HDL, triglycerides, blood pressure and BMI. Biometric screenings are a great way to know your numbers, as several chronic health conditions may not present any physical symptoms.
In addition to health screenings, employees were able to visit over 60 informational booths providing an array of local health and fitness services. Vision and skin cancer screenings were also available. Local chiropractors were available to provide spinal alignment evaluations and chair massage.
Both groups had great participation and the employees that attended the events were eligible for raffles and giveaways.
Health fairs provide that first stepping stone towards a culture of wellness, especially if biometric screenings are performed during the event.
In addition to promoting health and wellness year round, the City of Marietta has an onsite Employee Health and Wellness Center, where employees and dependents receive acute and wellness services and medication at no cost.
ShawHankins understands how much time and energy goes into planning a health fair. We were excited to assist their clients in the process.
