SALISBURY — Peninsula Regional Medical Center and the Wicomico County Board of Education invite everyone on the Delmarva Peninsula to join them for HealthFest: An event for all ages, on Saturday, April 6, from 7:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.

This year’s event, a showcase of healthy exhibits and health screenings, is free and open to the public at James M. Bennett High School.

Over 25 free health screenings will be available the day of the event and without pre-registration.  The health screenings, performed by Peninsula Regional Medical Center healthcare specialists and other area healthcare providers, will be available to anyone looking to find out how healthy they actually are, and to learn what they can do to lead an even healthier and more productive lifestyle.  Blood glucose and cholesterol screenings are included and require a 12 hour fast by participants.

At various times during the event, HealthFest will also offer participants free child safety seat checks,  a K9 demonstration, a fun walk, a rock climbing wall, fire engine and ambulance tours, a health corner for kids, and interactive demonstrations in cheer and dance, Zumba, chair aerobics, juggling and healthy cooking.
