The McAllen Chamber of Commerce Health Fair Committee invites everyone to participate in the 28th Annual “Heart of the Valley” Health, Fitness and Wellness Fair on Sunday, November 20, 2011 from 8 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., at the McAllen Convention Center. The Chamber sponsors this event to promote health awareness and education to the community and to give medical & wellness businesses the opportunity to give back to the community. Also, through the fair we are able to educate the community about the latest treatments, procedures, services and technology available in the Rio Grande Valley.
Exhibitors at the health fair will offer free health screenings in cholesterol, diabetes, blood pressure, vision/glaucoma, dental, chiropractic, bone density, live fitness routines among others. Over 6,000 Rio Grande Valley residents and Winter Texans take advantage of all the services offered at the health fair.
The health fair also features a children’s section promoting health and wellness in children. Contests are held with door prizes awarded to the best coloring contest participant in three different age categories and to the child that makes a Hole-In-One at the Miniature Golf contest. Entertainment is provided for children as well as health and safety education.
The McAllen Chamber of Commerce “Heart of the Valley” health fair is the largest health fair in the Rio Grande Valley and is an excellent opportunity for health care related businesses as well as fitness gyms, spas and massage therapy, etc. to promote themselves.
