Hundreds Head To Health Fest In Salisbury - 47 ABC - Delmarva's Choice

Hundreds Head To Health Fest In Salisbury

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - Peninsula Regional Medical Center helped folks on Delmarva stay healthy with the annual health fest.
Hundreds came out the event, which featured free health screenings and got a chance to learn about some of the tools doctors use to help keep them healthy,  like the Da Vinci robot.  Folks were also able to get in some exercise on the moon bounce and rock climbing wall.

"It's not just all fun and games.  We want the kids to come out here with a good message about eating healthy, and taking care of themselves as well," says Roger Follebout, spokesperson for PRMC, "the community gets an opportunity for free, absolutely no cost at all, to come out and participate in 25 free screenings, find out how healthy they are, and what they can do to become even healthier."

The goal was to get about one-thousand people to the health fair today, but organizers say the weather might have kept a few people from wanting to be cooped up inside.
