Health, Safety, and Wellness Expo a huge hit

| January 20, 2014

COSHOCTON – Kids America was swamped on Saturday, Jan. 18 at the second annual Health, Safety, and Wellness Expo which ran from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. Local residents turned out in large numbers and gathered information from various local vendors regarding their health and wellness.

“We’ve had many people through the door today, and a lot of families,” said Amy Stockdale, executive director of the Coshocton County Chamber of Commerce. “I think all the vendors have been very happy with the turnout. We’re really pleased, and it’s been great partnering with Kids America as a host site and of course, Coshocton County Memorial Hospital. We couldn’t do it without their support.”

After browsing through the many vendors present at the event, most people stopped in at the Coshocton Hospital station to get tested and screened for many health issues.

“For us, it’s been excellent,” said Mary Ellen Given, Director of Marketing at the hospital. “We’ve had the opportunity to see a lot of people at the screenings. It’s nice to see people come out on a cold day to get some health information.”

Everyone who came through the doors hopefully left with a greater understanding of their overall health and also of the many resources in our county to help them better their health, safety, and wellness.

“I think it’s really nice that they have this,” said Cheryl Wilson, who attended the event. “It makes everyone aware of what we have in the community.”
