WARSAW, Ill. — More than 150 participants attended the Warsaw Wellness Expo on Saturday, April 20. Memorial Hospital and the Warsaw Chamber of Commerce partnered to be the hosts of the event at the Bott Community Center. The Expo offered a diverse range of screenings, demonstrations and activities tailored to all age groups and interests.

“The Warsaw Wellness Expo was not just an event. It was a celebration of health, community and collaboration,” Ashlyn Housewright, executive director of Community Health and Wellness at Memorial Hospital, said in a press release. “By coming together, attendees learned, connected and supported each other on their wellness journeys.”

Throughout the morning, attendees savored refreshments and learned about health services. The Warsaw Chamber of Commerce highlighted local businesses and attractions. Participants had chances to win an iPad, a gift card and products from Memorial MedSpa, as well as a Skin Essence moisturizer.

Children were particularly delighted by the Kids Expo, where they engaged in demonstrations and activities, visited the Teddy Bear Clinic, enjoyed face painting and bounced in the inflatable house.

“The event was a smashing success,” said Cassandra Grunewald, president, Warsaw Chamber of Commerce and owner, RePete Candle and Coffee Bar. “Anything that brings our community out to celebrate together is important, but especially important when the focus is health. It’s imperative that our citizens understand the resources available to them here in Hancock County.”

One of the highlights of the Expo was the opportunity for community members to provide feedback on healthcare services through community surveys. Memorial Hospital invites Warsaw residents and Hancock County residents to fill out the surveys at the links below.
