Health & Fitness Fair January 26th

The 12th Annual Health & Fitness Fair, sponsored by Rogers Pharmacy, Maryville Parks & Rec and SSM Health St. Francis Hospital, will be held Saturday, January 26, from 8 to 11 a.m. at the Maryville Community Center, 1407 N. Country Club Road.

The goal for the event is to help area residents live healthier and happier lives by learning more about important health and wellness products and services.

The hospital will once again offer free health screenings for blood pressure, lung capacity and  finger-stick cholesterol and glucose. Anyone planning to take part in the blood draw is asked to fast for at least 8 hours (no food or drink except water). The blood screening will be limited to the first 100 participants and will be on a first-come, first-serve basis.

In addition to information about health and fitness products and offerings, there will be free samples and giveaways, door prizes and a bounce house for the kids. As part of their 125th anniversary celebration in 2019, the hospital will also be giving away five $25 gift cards.

For more information, call the St. Francis Community Relations office at (660) 562-7933.
