Health fair set for Provo Rec Center

Get Healthy, Utah! Intermountain Utah Valley Heart and Vascular Services is sponsoring the Community Heart Fair on 9 a.m. to noon today at the Provo Rec Center.

This free event is open to everyone. Get your blood pressure, cholesterol, body fat and heart rate tested. Then step over to the booths, where you can learn more about the sleep center, the diabetes clinic, respiratory therapy, and food and nutrition. Wear your exercise clothes and hop into a spin, yoga or Zumba class. Then sample some healthy food at a cooking demonstration.

At 9 a.m., bestselling author Ron McMillan will speak on how to change anything —including your eating and exercise habits. McMillan is co-author of four immediate “New York Times” bestsellers and creator of four award-winning training programs of the same titles — “Crucial Conversations,” “Crucial Confrontations,” “Influencer” and “Change Anything.” He is also theco-founder of VitalSmarts, an innovator in corporate training and organizational performance for which he was awarded the 2007 Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year award. VitalSmarts has helped more than three hundred of the Fortune 500 realize significant results using a proven method for driving rapid, sustainable, and measurable change in behaviors.

 

What more could Intermountain Healthcare bring to an event besides a bestselling author, free tests, educational booths, exercise classes, and a cooking demonstration? Free prizes, of course!

So put on your tennis shoes and head to the Provo Rec Center for a healthy, fun morning! For more information about the event, please visit http://intermountainhealthcare.org/hospitals/uvrmc/services/heart/community/heart-workshop/Pages/home.aspx, or drop by and check it out today!
