Annual Community Wellness Fair

Several members of the greater Los Angeles community came to Marina Del Rey Hospital Nov. 9 to celebrate good health and pick up some pointers on how to improve fitness for the holidays and the new year.

At the hospital’s second annual Health and Wellness Fair, attendees took part in a wide range of activities and services. The hospital provided free flu shots and screenings, mini-massages, demonstrations and workshops (including the L.A. Fire Department teaching attendees CPR), and raffles and giveaways.

“It went great,” Marketing Program Coordinator Brian Hill said. "Last year was the first one, and we had two hundred people come out – and that was without any advertising. We promoted this year’s event more, and the turnout showed it."

“We’re happy to have the chance to talk with people about all the facets of good health. Medical checkups, diet, how to respond to emergencies, de-stressing – it’s all important, and we’re committed to helping people take a well-rounded approach to their health.”

Sponsors included the LAFD, the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department, and local businesses.

One lucky winnter took home the grand prize of an iPad in the raffle. The hospital’s goal was to send everyone away with a valuable prize: the energy and information they need to boost their health.

Marina Del Rey Hospital provides excellent care across a variety of specialties, including spinal surgery, bariatric (weight-loss) surgery, and minimally invasive robot-assisted surgery. Community members who couldn’t come to the festival are invited to call the hospital at 888.600.5600 to find out more about its services.
