Wellness expo makes health easy

WEST Moonah Community House and Rotary Tasmania are making access to health and wellbeing services much easier with a free Wellness Expo on Saturday 29 February.

The expo, now in its seventh year, will provide an insight into the services available for the community – all related to health and general life challenges.

“There are so many services that are free and fee-for-services available to you to access, but where to start, where to find out what’s out there?” West Moonah Community House manager Mel Knuckey said.

“Here is the perfect chance to find everything in one place.”

The Wellness Expo will feature more than 80 stalls focused on health and wellness, covering all the information you need to know from birth to death.

“And yes, there will even been DIY coffins,” Rotary Tasmania assistant governor Biddy Fisk said.

“The Wellness Expo will have free hearing checks, blood pressure checks, one-on-one contact with service providers and demonstrations.

“Learn different ideas on keeping fit and preventative measures for a healthy outcome.

“Health starts at home and in your general life choices, with small things like social groups, looking good, general exercise, food for health, holistic and naturopathic approaches, mainstream medicine and all the things in between.

“We’re sure you will find something that suits your needs at the expo.”

There will be a range of activities for the kids including animal nursery, face painting, Bricks 4 Kids and more.

Food will be available and don’t forget to check out the Flying Doctors Flight Simulator.

The free Wellness Expo will be held on Saturday 29 February at Princes Wharf from 10am to 3pm.

The event is sponsored by Hobart City Council, Prompt Care, TM Management Group and Scanlon Richardson Financial Group.
