Join Northwestern Medical Center for a family-friendly event focused on healthy fun. From 9 to noon you’ll be able to get free health screenings and visit activity stations to learn about getting active, eating well, avoiding tobacco and more. Our partners Northwestern Counseling and Support Services will run fun family activities in the large gymnasium and RiseVT will highlight Active Play in the smaller gym. NMC’s Restaurant and Catering team provides free healthy snacks and smoothies and you can enjoy a free massage as well. This event grows bigger and better every year with more than 500 people attending in 2017.
Come visit RiseVT in the small gym and pick up your Playscription from Dr. Fontaine. Our activities will include hula hooping, family plank station, dance parties, photo booth and a chance to walk away with RiseVT swag.
Governor Phil Scott will be attending this year’s Healthy Hearts event! Governor Scott will tour the event and help us kick off our 9 month Active Play campaign. He will read and sign a proclamation about the importance of active play. We hope you’ll be there to meet him and show how we embrace active play and healthy lifestyles in our communities!
