More than 80 health care professionals will offer freevision and hearing exams in addition to free screenings for blood pressure, glucose, weight and BMI during the April 27 Health & Wellness Expo at the Sterling Community Center. During the 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. event, vendors also will provide information on nutrition, oral health, diabetes, women’s health, and pre-natal care.
The community event is designed to bring together representatives from area nonprofit and health organizations to ensure Sterling residents have access to quality health resources including information and counseling services to combat smoking, drug addiction and domestic violence. Inova Blood Donor Services will be onsite to accept blood donations. Other participating organizations include the Loudoun Health Department, Catholic Charities, Good Shepherd Alliance, Legal Services, Area Agency on Aging, Commuter Services, Salvation Army, Fire and Rescue, Sheriff’s Department, Loudoun County Parks, Recreation & Community Services, Wegmans, The Y, and Food pantries.
“This effort exemplifies the spirit of ‘Neighbors Helping Neighbors,’” organizer Ken Courter said.
There is no charge to participate or attend.
