Our HMFP Radiology Practice Sites are members of the Newton/Needham and Brookline Chambers of Commerce. The Newton/Needham Chamber has an extension that is “Women in Networking” and this group kicked the new year off with a “Healthier You” focus. The details are below.
Mass Vein Care and HMFP Radiology participated. We had a table with information on bone density (DXA scans) as well as body composition (Marian Howes spoke to these services). Mass Vein Care also had table information however the Chamber wanted “fun interactive engaging” so…we brought the ultrasound machine and performed complimentary vein evaluations. The fair was 11:30 – 2 pm and we had to turn folks away!
75 Chamber members registered and had the opportunity to visit up to 14 Stations as well as 5 breakout sessions.
Some other participating health/wellness providers included:
- Newton Wellesley Women’s Health – Dr. Stephanie Morris
- BID Needham – Flu Shots – table staffed by Occupational Health Nurse and a member of BID Marketing
- Marathon Sports – Pelvic Floor Health
- Newton HealthCare – Blood pressure checks
- Newton Chiropractic – Posture checks
- The Wellness Room – Stress Reduction and Reiki
- Whole Foods – Cooking demonstrations and provided lunch
