018COSHOCTON – Kids America hosted the fourth Health, Safety, and Wellness Expo on Saturday, Jan. 16 from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. with 48 outside vendors and 22 booths staffed by the Coshocton County Memorial Hospital. “We’ve had hundreds through the door and tons of positive feedback,” said Amy Stockdale, executive director of the Chamber of Commerce. The hospital expanded through screenings at the expo and people were able to meet physicians and surgeons as well. “For some of the screenings, it’s just been constant,” said Mary Ellen Given, director of marketing at the hospital. “We’ve had over 40 lab draws so far.” Given was glad to see so many people take advantage of the services offered at the expo. “It’s a wonderful opportunity for people to come in and meet the surgeons and Dr. Owen.” She said that 78 volunteers from the hospital helped at the expo. “I’m very proud of our staff for coming in and giving up their morning to the community,” Given said.
