OU Medicine Family Wellness Expo invites parents and kids for fun and fitness on July 28

(Oklahoma City) Oklahoma families can learn more about their health and wellness while enjoying interactive games and other activities at the OU Medicine Family Wellness Expo Friday, July 28. 

The event is offered at no cost to participants and will be held from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. inside The Children’s Hospital Atrium on the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center campus in Oklahoma City. 

“We face many health challenges in Oklahoma, and it is critical to give parents and their children the information they need to live longer, healthier lives,” said Brian Maddy, CEO of OU Physicians.  “We expect everyone to have a good time at the expo, but we also want them to walk away with a better understanding of their health and wellness.”

To help better inform parents about family health needs, OU Medicine will offer free health screenings and educational materials at the expo. Kids, meanwhile, will have plenty of opportunities for fun with a variety of games and other activities.
