500+ turn out for Women’s Wellness

Release Date: 04/22/2014

Inland Hospital’s 17th annual World of Women’s Wellness health fair brought more than 500 women together for a day of wellness, pampering, and learning on April 5, 2014 at Thomas College in Waterville.  This year’s World of Women’s Wellness offered free health screenings, pampering services, wellness exhibits, and several fun, interactive demonstrations.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for the women of our community to learn more about their health status and find resources to help them make improvements if needed.  We’re very fortunate to have so many community partners, hospital staff, and volunteers who came together to make it a great day for hundreds of participants!” said Ellen Wells, Inland’s Community Wellness Coordinator.

The popular event provided more than 1800 free health screenings including blood pressure, cholesterol, bone density, breast exams, skin analyzing, and more. Dozens of local businesses and organizations united to bring the Central Maine community the premier wellness event of the year.  This event continues to be a huge success thanks to the coordinated efforts of numerous Inland employees, community volunteers, speakers, and collaborating partners. 

On-stage interactive demonstrations offered participants opportunities to have fun while learning helpful, easy cooking tips and new ways to be active. Hannaford generously served up a variety of delicious samplings throughout the day at their popular booth.  The event was brought to an energetic close by an enthusiastic group of Colby College drummers.

Women’s Wellness 2015 is scheduled for Saturday, March 28 at Thomas College ~ save the date and plan to treat yourself to a day that’s fun, informative, and all about you!
