Manatee County to co-sponsor  Sept. 13 Wellness Expo

Manatee County Government will team with the School District of Manatee County and Woodland—The Community Church to sponsor the third annual Wellness Expo.

The Expo will be held at the church, 9607 State Road 70 East, on Tuesday, Sept. 13 from 6 to 9 p.m. Health and wellness vendors and Manatee County healthcare providers will provide health screenings and tips at more than 100 informational booths this year. There will be wellness-based activities and demonstrations, including complimentary exercise classes and special demonstrations for kids, teens, adults and seniors.  

“The previous Expos have attracted many residents who greatly enjoyed the fun, the food and the information,” said Manatee School District’s Wellness Coordinator Kristi Dickerson. “This year’s attendees will enjoy a festive atmosphere and healthy food; take home plenty of ‘freebies’ and have the opportunity to gather useful information about variety topics in health and wellness."

Attendees may also register for door prizes worth $500. Florida Blood Services will have a bloodmobile will be on site to allow attendees to give back to the community.

Admission to the Expo is $5 and may be purchased at the door or online at www.gowoodland.com/WellnessExpo Admission is free to School District and County employees who present a valid ID from either of those agencies.
