On April 21, RVNA will hold its 44th annual Community Health and Wellness Fair from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at East Ridge Middle School. More than 80 exhibitors will be on hand to provide free screenings, from skin cancer and carotid artery assessments to vision, hearing and cholesterol testing. You can learn hands-only CPR from the Ridgefield Fire Department and enjoy a chair massage. Exhibitors will have information on such health-related topics as Alzheimer’s and Lyme disease, caregiver and cancer support, and community resources, including Meals on Wheels, Ridgefield Emergency Preparedness and Rides for Ridgefield.
The popular “Ask the Expert” booths will allow an opportunity for one-on-one conversations with doctors in various specialties, as well as other health care professionals. Representatives from traditional, alternative and integrative medicine will be present. There will be booths on acupuncture, stress relief and the use of therapy dogs.
