2024-08-14T15:00:00Z 2024-08-14T19:00:00Z William G Milliken State Park and Harbor - Celebrating a Healthier Detroit Expo

Theme: Fostering Resilience Through Healthy Living

Event takes place on Wednesday, August 14, 2024; from 11am–3pm at William G. Milliken State Park & Harbor, 1900 Atwater St, Detroit, MI 48207which anchors the River Walk.

*All Greater Detroit communities and families are invited and encouraged to attend.
FREE ADMISSION for everyone!

The purpose of the Expo is to close the knowledge gap and reduce health disparities in metro Detroit, especially for residents who are ‘uninsured and underinsured.’ This is achieved by bringing together the greater health and wellness communities to educate families about relevant health issues and share programs that are most beneficial to creating and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

The Expo consists of informational seminars, invited speakers, exhibits and health screenings targeting health issues relevant to our community: [long] COVID-19, HIV, disease prevention, strengthening immune system, mental health and self-care, depression, diet-based diseases with emphasis on childhood obesity, nutrition, fitness, asthma, preventative care, and wellness for the entire family. Featured highlights: healthy cooking demos & tastings for the entire family, free give-a-ways, prizes, music, song, dance and much more!

Summer is a time to enjoy good music, healthy foods, and Family! This August, The McKinney Foundation will focus its educational programming on critical matters related to health and wellness. In an effort to ensure a healthier metro Detroit we are collaborating with the healthcare community to provide a unique array of activities that center on chronic health concerns affecting our region.

To create this reality, The McKinney Foundation collaborates with like-minded agencies providing quality educational programs.
