Tulsa Day of Health June 22 at Promenade Mall

The Tulsa Health Department is a proud sponsor of the 2013 Tulsa Day of Health, which will be be held June 22 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Promenade Mall.

Tulsa Day of Health will brings together doctors, nurses, pharmacists, therapists, dietitians and fitness experts in an attempt to improve Tulsa’s health status.

Free health screenings and nearly 40 booths with health information, free apples, water, snacks and other giveaways are available to attendees.

“18.9 percent of Oklahoma residents do not have insurance, and as a result, there are many people not receiving preventive health care such as blood pressure and other basic screenings. Many people are unaware of illnesses until they require expensive emergency care,” said Maiuri Ranchhod, event chair.

Free cholesterol, diabetes and blood pressure screenings are set for the event. Other opportunities include memory screenings, assistance completing an advance directive, ideas for healthy eating on a budget, and tips for planning life transitions.

Adult participants will receive a Health Passport, and after visiting all the booths, the Passport becomes an entry for door prizes donated by Promenade Mall merchants.

Other event sponsors include Counseling & Recovery Services of Oklahoma, Morton Comprehensive Health Services, OU Physicians Health @ Work, Family & Children’s Services and Tulsa Promenade Mall.
