East Hills Mall holds Health Expo

Maryann Kopp

The Heart & Stroke Health Expo 2007 was held at the East Hills Mall on Saturday, Feb. 10. It spread mainly throughout the middle of the mall, with the food court taking center stage. There were myriad booths providing health screenings and information, all free to the public.

A fairly large turnout participated in all sorts of health assessments (from cholesterol screenings to EKG recordings) as well as drawings, which took place every thirty minutes. No purchase was necessary to take place in any of the drawings, but the only way a person could be a candidate for any of the prizes was by visiting at least twelve booths and receiving a stamp on a card to validate the visit.

The expo offered a great deal of information for all present individuals who were searching for answers to their questions regarding heart disease and stroke.
