There is nothing in this life more precious than our health. When we are thriving mentally and physically, we are better equipped to show up in our day-to-day lives, ready to conquer whatever the day throws at us. But in our busy lives, it can be challenging to slow down and take inventory of everything we should do to keep our health in tip-top shape. If you’re ready to start your health journey but unsure where to begin, you’re in luck! The Henry J. Austin Health Center recently announced its upcoming Community Health Fair, and it’s coming your way this August 10th.
An afternoon of health, happiness, and fun is coming to the community on Thursday, August 10th. Henry J. Austin Health Center’s Community Health Fair will be held from 3 pm to 6 pm at Monument Park, 321 N Warren Street, Trenton, NJ 08618. This event is held in honor of National Health Week, a nationwide initiative to get communities connected with health, wellness, and resources to help them thrive. Guests of all ages are invited to participate in the fun, so bring the whole family to celebrate health. Attendees can access several activities and resources throughout the afternoon, including health screenings, wellness activities, and more.
Some highlights of the afternoon include:
- Zumba class at 3:30 pm
- Beginners yoga at 4:30 pm
