A wealth of info at the Health and Wellness Expo
WORTON — This year’s Health and Wellness Expo, hosted by HomePorts, provided a “one stop shop” for the latest health, wellness and safety information.
The expo was held Thursday, Oct. 18 at Kent County High School. It boasted more than 75 community resource offer- ings along with expert talks, free health screenings, flu shots, refreshments and door prizes.
Partners for the event, which was organized by HomePorts and Kent County Public Schools, were the Kent County Health Department, University of Maryland Shore Regional Health and Anne Arundel Medical Center.
The expo was followed by a forum with all six candidates for Kent County Commissioner on “topics of community concern” including transportation and health care in the county.
