Mark your calendars for Riderwood’s 17th Annual Health Fair! This year’s event will be held on Tuesday, March 14 from 10:00am to 2:00pm (Editor’s Note: This event was rescheduled for March 20th at the same time and location) in Montgomery Station’s Maryland Hall. This annual event provides our residents with the resources they need to learn more about healthy lifestyles, alternative therapies, and disease prevention and treatment. With over 70 vendors, this year’s Health Fair is expected to be a great success in providing information from local physicians, Riderwood departments, resident groups, and outside organizations. There will be a variety of health-related screenings such as blood pressure, vision and hearing checks, as well as informative guest lecturers, stage performances and prizes.
Guest lectures and times are as follows:
- 11:00 – 11:45am “Take Charge of Your Health”
- 12:00 – 12:45pm “Healthy Eating for a Strong Heart Beating” Food Demo
- 1:00 – 1:45pm “How to CREATE Your Longer, Healthier and Happier Life”
