Record 2,500 turnout for Hospital Expo 2015
PRESCOTT - The Yavapai Regional Medical Center's fourth annual "Celebrate Life!" Health Expo last month generated a record 2,500 people from the Quad-City region.
All those who attended were able to take advantage of health screenings and related services.
"The Celebrate Life! Health Expo is a community service YRMC provides to people throughout our region,' said Robbie Nicol, executive director of the hospital's outreach and philanthropy. "This year's expo was filled with fun and learning for people of all ages. The children had fun, and the adults learned about the variety of health care resources our communities offer."
Some of the educational sessions included a virtual dementia tour, nutrition programs, vascular disease prevention, dental health and pain management.
Community members were also able to learn about a variety of hospital services: advanced wound care, breast care, emergency and trauma services, infusion therapy, physical rehabilitation, neurosurgical medicine and respiratory wellness. Some 50 health care organizations participated in the expo.
"YRMC is very grateful to all of the organizations and vendors that participated in the Expo 2015," Nicol said. "It was an incredible day for everyone involved."
