Award Report – Regional Health Fair Attracts Over 3,000
The 18th Annual Health and Fitness Fair, sponsored by NYS Senator Jim Alesi, again drew over 3,000 attendees from the greater Rochester metropolitan area. One hundred and sixty-two exhibitors participated in the largest health fair of its kind in the area.
During the time period set aside for professional interchange, about a half dozen professional health care providers stopped by the booth to get more information. These included nurse educators, physical therapists and chiropractors. Many members of the public, who were unaware that accurate and reliable health information could be found on the Internet, were surprised that there was no charge for this service.
We were very pleased with the interest that the booth generated and became even more aware of the need for outreach activities to inform the public of the services that we and NLM offer.
