WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — We look forward to this day year round. It is an opportunity for everyone to come out and receive CPR training and a variety of tests, all for free. Some of those who attended come to our health fair religiously.
“We try to come every year, and we have annual physicals also but it’s supplementary and it covers some things that don’t necessarily get covered otherwise,” said Edwin Robertson, a regular participant.
“I like to check up on what the doctors have found. I think it’s important I learn other things about processes that are opened that I might need,” said Dorothy Walters, Robertson’s wife.
This is an event we couldn’t pull off without New Hanover Regional Medical Center.
“We’re just here to help promote healthy lifestyles today in conjunction with all these other beautiful organizations,” said Dr. Constance Foreman, MD with NHRMC.
All of those organizations promote heart and lung health, diabetes awareness and many other health matters.
It was an event for all ages, and if you missed it, there’s always next year.
