Bayhealth is hosting its 16 Annual Baby Fair along with its first Family Wellness Expo at the Delaware State Fair Grounds, in Harrington, Del.

“The event is about educating expectant parents, providing education, and promoting health, and it’s our way of reaching out to the community,” said Karen Merson, the Nursing Manager of Education at Bayhealth.

The event will take place on March 24, from 10a.m. to 2p.m. The Baby Fair is going to be held at the Exhibit Hall and the Family Wellness Expo is going to be held in the Dover building on the State Fair campus. Over 45 vendors and over 20 departments from Bayhealth are going to be represented.

“Our goal is to have something for everyone,” said Merson

The theme for the Family Wellness Expo is ‘Cultivating Healthy Habits’. Programs such as Lifestyle’s Fitness Center will be offering insight on different ways to adopt fitness routines. Bayhealth’s Tobacco Cessation will also be providing information on how to stop nicotine addiction.

“It’s a great way for the community to learn about the resources that are available to them, and to be able to interact with doctors and nurses,” said Merson.

The Baby Fair will have activities such as puppet shows and obstacle courses. A child birth educator will be there to provide information for families who are expecting, or who are first time parents.

The Family Wellness Expo will have tables set up for health screenings, information about Bayhealth services and insight on preventive care all free of charge.

During the event, Dr. James Mills, a neurosurgeon at Bayhealth will be making a few statements during the expo and at the concussion clinics.

“The government spends billions of dollars on health costs when most health illnesses can be prevented,” said Michael Tu, Public Relations Specialist at Bayhealth. Our core commitment has always been to emphasize prevention so that people can have a better quality of life.”
