Health & wellness fairs are a cost-effective way of providing valuable health information and screening services for all your employees at a single event. It is also a way to motivate them to make positive health behavior changes and to assume responsibility for their own well being. Successful health & wellness fairs require a good amount of planning, commitment, and dedication. In return, you will be providing people with an opportunity to reevaluate their lifestyles. It is no surprise that healthcare costs are on the rise.
This guide was designed for employees of a church covered by Medical Trust — but the ideas in the Guide work for a Health and Wellness Fair hosted for your members and/or community. You will need to think about agencies and organizations that are willing to provide health and wellness information or advice. Some groups will do blood pressure checks, nutrition advice or exercise instruction.
