Burienâ€™s annual celebration of healthy living â€“ the Wellness Fair â€“ will be held at Town Square Park on Saturday, Sept. 19, from 10 a.m. â€“ 3 p.m. Healthy activities for your mind, body and spirit will be the prescription of the day at this FREE community event. You are invited to join leading health care and wellness professionals from our community as they share some of the best information available for how we can all live our healthiest and best lives. This annual event provides a terrific opportunity to learn about the newest best-practices in health care. You can also improve your general well-being with free health screenings, free samples, physical fitness information and much more. The first 250 people who attend the Wellness Fair also receive a free gift! This year, the fair focuses on prevention with a fully-programmed stage dedicated to demonstrations and interactive presentations on how to live your healthiest life. Thank you to the health care and wellness professionals who have so generously donated their time and expertise to share their knowledge with us on stage and at the fair, as well as to the City of Burien and CHI Franciscan Health for their generous sponsorship of the fair! Burienâ€™s Community Wellness Fair is an outgrowth of the Burien Wellness Cluster, an economic initiative launched by the City of Burien in early 2008. The goal of the cluster is to boost Burienâ€™s economy by building on Burienâ€™s existing wealth of high-quality health care providers. To accomplish that goal, providers, educators and local government partner together to sustain the Cityâ€™s skilled medical professionals and attract new talent. Donâ€™t miss this opportunity to learn from the experienced health care and wellness professionals of Burienâ€™s medical community at the Cityâ€™s free Burien Wellness Fair! â€œThe Doctors ARE IN!â€ ALSO…WALK FOR THE WOMEN OF HOSPITALITY HOUSE JUST BEFORE THE WELLNESS FAIR!
