Living Well - Grand Rapids
A brand new health and wellness show will help area residents achieve their New Year's resolutions, when Living Well – Grand Rapids debuts at DeVos Place this January.
Growing interest in personal wellness is apparent everywhere in West Michigan: the Medical Mile and suburban Health Campuses provide world-class healthcare, grocery stores and farm markets offer a bounty of fresh, locally-grown and -produced foods, runners of all ages and abilitites participate in more than 250 local events, including the USA's largest 25k race.
"This event will assist so many people on their journey towards a healthier lifestyle by putting them in touch with the right experts and businesses,"says Show Manager Dawn Baker. "It's just what our community is looking for."
Baker says the two-day show, which is produced by ShowSpan, will feature hundreds of exhibitors representing everything from health insurance plans and hospitals to alternative health services; from birthing centers to assisted living facilities; from child development centers to fitness clubs; plus, health screenings, life coaching, and much more.
Meijer Registered Dietitian and Healthy Living Manager Shari Steinbach says Meijer is excited to be the presenting sponsor of Living Well – Grand Rapids.
"It's a great fit," Steinbach said. "Meijer is committed to helping families be well and stay well. Meijer offers a wide variety of products and services under one roof that help our customers focus on their health and wellness."
Also participating in the inaugural Living Well show, as a pavilion sponsor, is Mercy Health, a new healthcare system combining St. Mary's Health Care in Grand Rapids with Mercy Health Partners of Muskegon.
"Living Well – Grand Rapids is a wonderful opportunity for Mercy Health to showcase our health and wellness offerings and engage people in meaningful conversations that move them further along the path toward a sustainable, healthier lifestyle," says Regional Marketing Director Tara Geror. "We think the show will serve as a starting point for people seeking accurate information, tools and healthy life skills."
