The 2103 Health & Wellness Festival, presented by the Greater Wesley Chapel Chamber of Commerce (WCCC) and Florida Medical Clinic is a wrap, after an impressive turnout at the Shops at Wiregrass Mall on February 23.
“This event was a great opportunity for the people of Wesley Chapel to consult medical professionals free of charge and meet physicians in the surrounding area,” said Hope Allen, a WCCC spokesperson. “The most important thing that we hoped we accomplished was to promote awareness of living a healthier lifestyle.”
Vendors big and small from the New Tampa and Wesley Chapel areas, including Florida Medical Clinic, Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel (FHWC) and the new FHWC Wellness Center, Pura Cycling, New Tampa Chiropractic & Injury Center, /Dr. Duga & Associates Pediatric Dentistry and many more, lined Paseo Dr. at the Shops at Wiregrass mall under skies that were sunny, but with a sometimes blustery wind. Many of the exhibiting medical professionals providing free health services, from blood pressure tests to cosmetic consultations.
“It’s a great event,” said Dr. Bill Scheu of New Tampa Chiropractic & Injury Center in between administering free spinal screenings. “We’re out here ‘talking health’ to people. You can’t beat it.”
The WCCC previously held the Health & Wellness Center at The Grove at Wesley Chapel shopping plaza, but has decided to once again hold next year’s event at The Shops at Wiregrass, due to the positive feedback from vendors and the outstanding community turnout. – MW
