Oct 03, 2018

Health and wellness related vendors are invited to participate in the Cumberland County Employee Wellness Fair Oct. 22-26 at the Crown Expo Center, 301 East Mountain Drive. About 400 county employees will visit the fair each day.

 

The vendor registration deadline is Oct. 15. Tables will be provided and assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. Contact Cumberland County Wellness Services Director Tammy Gillis at 910-678-7728 or tgillis@co.cumberland.nc.us to register.

 

The County has contracted with Novant Health to run its Employee Wellness Clinic. During the annual wellness fair, Novant will screen employees for risk factors such as high blood pressure, cholesterol and diabetes.

 

Hours will be 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Oct. 22 and 24; and 6 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Oct. 23, 25 and 26.

 

Vendors are invited to participate and provide employees with information on health and wellness related topics such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, weight management, hearing, vision, tobacco cessation, physical activity, nutrition, stress management, behavioral health, safety and more. The goal of the health fair is to encourage county employees to lead a healthier lifestyle and improve their overall health status. 

 

We are encouraging local health and wellness agencies to support this event by sending a representative to discuss the services they provide, including information about costs and any discounts available to the general public.
