Doors open to the public at 12 p.m. and admission is free for the entire family. The event runs until 4 p.m.
Some of the common health issues South Asians face include diabetes, high blood pressure and weight gain due to a high calorie diet. All age groups in the South Asian community are being affected and it’s time for everyone to take control of their health. The upcoming South Asian Health Expo is a great opportunity to have access to all this valuable information under one roof at the same time.
There will be free health testing available on site: blood sugar testing, hearing testing and eye exams. Be sure to enter the Grand Prize giveaway at registration and one winner will have a chance to win a Fitness Starter kit valued at $2,000 (gym membership, supplement package, free classes, etc.)
Various vendors from the health, wellness and fitness industry will be on site giving out information, and distributing product samples and prize giveaways. Also, the 9th edition of the South Asian Health Magazine will be distributed to the attendees for free.
The Health Expo caters to all age groups within the community who have a variety of interests. Essentially, there is something for everyone. You are never too young or too old to take control of your health. There will be a short Speaker Series around 2 p.m. where local experts will share tips, advice and information about their companies / organizations.
Some of the non-profit agencies that are participating in the SA Health Expo include Canadian Diabetes Association, Heart & Stroke Foundation, Canadian Cancer Society, Jivana Organ Donor Society, Guru Nanak’s Free Kitchen, Global Girl Power, Canadian Mental Health Association, Moving Forward Family Services and South Asian Family Association.
