Free Health & Wellness Fair, March 20

UMW's Health & Wellness Fair will be held March 20.

UMW’s Health & Wellness Fair will be held March 20.

Campus Dining and the UMW Department of Human Resources are again co-sponsoring a free Health & Wellness Fair that is open to our campus and Fredericksburg communities.  The fair will be held on Wednesday, March 20, between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. in the University Center.  The fair has grown so large that this year the vendors will be in the Chandler Ballroom and also on the second floor of the UC.

As in previous years, there will be representatives from area health care professionals; dance, fitness and athletic groups; massage therapists; vision and dental practices; senior care providers; food and beverage companies; and a multitude of support groups.  There will also be representatives present from our UMW partner financial and benefit planning institutions.

Free blood pressure and cholesterol checks, neck massages, and healthy beverage and snack samples will be available throughout the fair. There will be door prize drawings held every half hour beginning at 3:45 p.m. and continuing through 5:45 p.m. in the Chandler Ballroom.  Guests are asked to stop by the welcome desk in Chandler Ballroom first in order to pick up your door prize entry forms and guide on how to enter the drawings.
