This year we have enhanced focus on both women's and men's health.
For men we will offer prostate PSA exams complete with a full lipid panel screening with testing for testosterone and glucose levels, triglycerides and HGL and LDL levels... saving each participant over $700 if they had the same testing performed at the doctor's office!
For women, we will will have a mobile mammogram bus on site, breast cancer awareness and prevention workshops, pap smears, and colon cancer testing kits.

"We simply must do better," says Dr. Aaron Horne, MD, MBA, MHS, and a leading Interventional Cardiologist: Peripheral Vascular Disease Interventional Cardiology; Structural Heart Specialist.
Dr. Horne is passionately committed to helping communities learn about the effects that lifestyle choices have on their bodies, and specifically their hearts.
"We must do a better job in sharing information. Better in keeping our communities in tact, so we live longer and not be miserable."
It is this drive to give back that leads him to return our annual Health & Wellness Expo on Saturday April 18, 2020. Last year, his workshop was hugely successful and this year's session on Heart Care and Heart Disease is expected to be packed.
Undoubtedly this is a broad issue, but making a change starts with the first step. "It starts with education, and then application. For example, many people do not realize that the signs of a heart attack for a woman is different than for a man. So, we will share information to help you identify the signs. And in other cases, we know that we should take certain actions, such as not adding additional salt to our meal. We need you and your family members to help each other live a healthier lifestyles. Your choices could literally mean life or death."
Dr. Horne is not only a workshop presenter, but he cares. This is why he supports the 100 and Mt. Olive with the Health & Wellness Expo initiative as a services to the greater community.
We invite you on Saturday, April 18th to participate in the Health & Wellness Expo and get Heart Care and Heart Disease information.
