Concentra Promotes Better Eats And Heart Beats At Festival In Michigan
8/20/07 // Posted in 2007 Archive
Beginning on August 31, 2007, Concentra is hosting a four-day Health and Wellness Expo at the largest festival in Michigan, the Chrysler Arts, Beats and Eats Festival in Pontiac, Mich.
Committed to promoting better health practices, Concentra will present a Health and Wellness Expo where visitors can test body mass index, receive a blood pressure reading, measure grip strength and obtain valuable health tips from Concentra physicians and clinicians.
Visitors who complete all three health information stations will receive a personal wellness form and prize from Concentra's Urgent Care facilities, recently expanded in the greater-Detroit area. One lucky visitor will receive a seven nights, all-expense paid trip to the Rui Ocho Rios Resort in Jamaica, from FunJet Vacations and Concentra Urgent Care.
"Concentra, committed to improving the quality of life, brings simple and effective health care solutions to its communities through employer-based services, medical care locations, and community health and wellness expos," said Assistant Vice-President of Sales for Concentra, Rick Zidek.
Throughout the festival, Concentra representatives will be offering wellness tips live on WWJ 950 AM. Concentra physician Beth Carter, M.D., recently profiled in Detroit Free Press' Twist magazine, will also be on site.
Concentra, a leader in employer health care solutions, maintains 21 medical care facilities in Michigan as well as a number of employer-based health services. The company recently expanded its Michigan operations with the addition of four Urgent Care facilities, which bridge the gap between primary care physicians and the emergency room, making health care accessible and affordable.
