Wellness Day this Friday

Wellness Day is Friday July 12.  Chef Charles and area health professionals will join the regular Market.  Chef Charles, the Southwest Virginia culinary ambassador returns to the Market to cook fresh, local ingredients.  If you missed him opening day, you have another opportunity to taste his cooking. I can’t wait to see what he does with all the berries, different varieties of squash, and the rest of the bountiful produce at the Market.  We also have several new meat vendors joining us. Samples will be available and donations are always welcome to help fund our cooking programs. Area health professionals will offer free screenings and information. Partners include: The Twin County Regional Healthcare(TCRH) , The Virginia Department of Health(VDH), Disabled Veteran Outreach Program, Strengthening Families, and Twin County Prevention Coalition. The TCRH team will share educational resources with the community and continue our EHAC (Early Heart Attack Care) and Stroke Awareness community education campaign. They will also showcase: Tobacco Cessation, Respiratory, Lab Direct, Physician Practices, Specialty Services, Blood Pressure Checks and BMI. VDH will offer tetanus vaccines. The Kids Corner will celebrate Wellness Day by making stress balls.
