The Mulvane Community Health and Wellness Fair is returning for its second year this February, providing local families with the connections and resources they need to find medical professionals. The fair will be held from 10 a.m. to noon on Feb 25 at Munson Primary School, presenting various community health organizations, pediatricians, optometrists, dentists and therapists; car seat checks; vision & hearing screenings; story time for kids; art activities and gymnastics exercises led by Mulvane Recreation Commission staff. Organizers Victoria Fleming (Mulvane Public Library youth coordinator) & Kande Jones (development director at Mulvane Recreation Commission) are looking forward to the event in order provide answers for families struggling with certain services in their area or Wichita city limits – targeting both new residents of all ages along with those who have young children attending after-school programs offered by MRC.
This is also the first time that the foundation/library/Parents As Teachers group partnering up for several events like Touch A Truck Night & Flashlight Easter Egg Hunt apart from this fair which aims to bring 100-200 people together – hopefully more! The purpose of the health and wellness fair is to empower local families with the knowledge they need in order to make informed decisions about their health and wellbeing. The event will include an extensive range of activities and services that promote personal health while providing answers to those struggling to find certain services near them. It’s no doubt an opportunity for individuals to stay informed about available resources, discover potential healthcare options and most importantly – strengthen the resilient community of Mulvane! From finding physician care, mental health care or dental care, every family should expect a friendly environment where they can ask questions, access tips from experienced professionals and receive one-on-one guidance if needed.
Guests can also take advantage of free screenings including vision & hearing tests as well as car seat safety checks – allowing parents peace of mind regarding their child’s safety when out on the road. In addition there will be plenty of activities on offer throughout the day such as gymnastics exercises led by recreation commission staff along with story time readings provided by library personnel – ensuring young ones are taken care of while parents enjoy a stress-free visit! The organizers aim to offer everyone a chance at maintaining physical health while learning how best they can do so using healthy lifestyle choices. They believe this event comes at a perfect opportunity during February when weather usually affects outdoor activities positively but still encourages people not to miss out on being physically active. Everyone is encouraged to join in and make it count – so don’t forget to mark your calendars for Feb 25th!
