Blue Hill Memorial Hospital Hosts 5th Annual Women's Wellness Fair

Release Date: 06/08/2016

Blue Hill, ME (June 3, 2016) – Blue Hill Memorial Hospital will hold its fifth annual  Women's Wellness Fair at the Bay School in Blue Hill from 4:00-7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, June 21.  Lead sponsors for this year's "Get on Board with Women's Wellness" event include Bar Harbor Bank and Trust and The Bay School.  The event is free and open to the public, and includes activities and information for women of all ages. "Blue Hill Memorial Hospital takes great pride in this event," says Kelley Columber, community relations manager at the hospital. "We look forward to the opportunity to connect with and educate our patients, friends, and neighbors in a fun, lively setting." Departments of Blue Hill Memorial Hospital will share information on surgical services, stress management, incontinence, nutrition, strength training, palliative care, heart health, in addition to blood pressure and cholesterol screenings, diabetes and nutrition assessments, and new this year – skin checks!  Several local businesses and agencies participating will highlight important community health and wellness resources as well.  
 
Women who attend the fair will also be introduced to complementary healers and practitioners.  The event provides a great opportunity for women to give therapies such as Aromatouch Therapy, Reiki, reflexology, or acupuncture a try.  In addition to the many traditional health fair activities, all guests will be offered scrumptious treats prepared by the Blue Hill Memorial Hospital and are encouraged to participate in massages, make-up touch ups, and hair consultations.
 
During the event, in front of Emlen Hall, there will be an opportunity to dispose of unwanted prescription medication.  The Prescription Drug Take-Back Event is a collaborative effort between Blue Hill Memorial Hospital, the Hancock County Sheriff's Office, and Healthy Acadia.  All community members are encouraged to bring any unused, unwanted, or expired prescription drugs to the entrance of the school for this free, anonymous service where a representative from the Sheriff's Office will be stationed for collection.
 
The event is designed to encourage and inspire women to take care of themselves and each other.  Every woman who attends will receive a free gift!
