Joe Robach’s office is planning to host their 5th Annual Women’s Wellness Fair.  The event will be held for the fifth time at Greece Ridge Mall on West Ridge Road, across the street from Joe Robach’s office.  Joe Robach has sponsored a number of women’s health events, most notable his wellness fair and the WXXI Speaking of Women’s Health Conference.

The Senator’s fair allows individuals to donate blood, obtain information about all types of health issues, get their blood pressure and cholesterol checked, get screened for various types of cancer, gain financial tips about retirement, get childcare information for working moms,  or even a massage.  Joe Robach office offers this fair free to both the public as well as to participating vendors.  Some of the vendors that have participated in the past include: Highland Breast Imaging; Rochester Athletic Club; Rochester General Health Systems; National Multiple Sclerosis; Perinatal Network of Monroe County; Center for Community Health – Cancer Services Program of Monroe County; Epilepsy Foundation; Alzheimer’s Association; Rochester Hearing and Speech Center; Unity Healthy Systems;  and many others.  For a few years, there were even live yoga demonstrations in the center of the mall and several people participated.  Joe Robach Senate office hopes to have another live demonstration this year.  If you have any suggestions, you should contact Joe Robach’s office and let them know.

This event has proved both popular and useful.  Joe Robach’s office will generally send out reminder postcards in the mail.   WDKX also sponsors this popular event and helps to get the word out over the air waves.  So, mark your calendars!  Joe Robach’s office has scheduled the event this year on Saturday, October 13th.   It is a fantastic event, so please be sure to tell your friends, wives, mothers and sisters.  If you are interested in participating or need more information, please contact Joe Robach’s office.
