LLUMC-Murrieta is hosting our 4th annual Family Health Fair on Sunday, September 27th starting at 12 noon and ending at 4 p.m. The event provides a variety of family fun that includes free rock climbing wall, bungee jumping, obstacle course, petting zoo and other kid-friendly activities. Live music from the well-known local cover band, Southbound, will provide an energetic background to farmers markets, fresh healthy food vendors, kettle corn and smoothies.
Loma Linda University Health and physicians affiliated with the hospital will provide a host of free health screenings could blood sugar, blood cholesterol, CBC, PSA, THS among others (screenings are still being planned and will be formalized closer to the event). Physicians affiliated with the hospital and hospital-based services will provide a variety of screenings, gifts, raffles and other health-enhancing activities. The CHP will be on hand along with the Murrieta Fired Department who will provide helmet fitting and other safety services.
The fair is designed to meet the needs of all members of a family and to help families connect with physicians and services affiliated with Loma Linda University Medical Center Murrieta. Local non-profits will also participate by showcasing the many ways they can help our community to access needed resources. Hospital services highlighted include the Family Birthing Center, Weight Loss, Heart Health, Neurosurgery, Robotic surgery among many others.
“We provide this health fair because healthcare and lifestyle are deeply related to each other. At this fair you get a little bit of everything, exercise, healthy fresh food, uplifting music, health advice and information, health screenings, time with our first responders and access to local support services,” said Kathryn Stiles, spokeswoman for the hospital and community relations director. “Healthy living is a major part of the Loma Linda Healthcare message and we are excited to see our friends and community members on Sunday September 28!”
The health fair takes place in the parking lot at the Professional Office Building next to the hospital, 28078 Baxter Road, Murrieta CA 92563. To learn more about it please visit our website www.llumcmurrieta.org.
