HEALTH EXPO 2018 PROMOTES GETTING A GOOD NIGHT SLEEP AND LIVING A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE

 

CINCINNATI – April 17, 2018 – One key tip to a healthy lifestyle is getting a good night sleep. Our poor and minority population suffer the most when it comes to sleep. “Sleep Well, Live Well” is the theme for the 15th annual the Center for the Closing the Health Gap’s Health Expo 2018 held Saturday, April 28, 2018 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Washington Park. Our theme highlights the importance of sleep, which is needed on a regular basis to keep the mind alert and the body experiencing less sickness.

 

This year’s event themed “Sleep Well, Live Well” aims at helping participants focus on the importance of getting enough sleep to promote a balanced and healthy life. Poor sleep contributes to the racial health disparity gap. Growing amounts of research link the lack of sleep to increased risk of chronic diseases. Diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and obesity are on the top of the list, when linked to poor sleep. These conditions also happen to be the most widespread among our minority populations.

 

In addition to over 100 booths and exhibits covering health screenings, live demonstrations and fitness tips, the Expo provides attendees with valuable information for pursuing a healthier lifestyle in almost every aspect of their daily lives.  Attendees come from a broad spectrum of ethnic, social, and economic backgrounds, but all have an interest in learning, trying, and experiencing health-related products and services.

 

Started in 2003, the Expo has attracted a dedicated community of followers, including thousands of attendees, local businesses, wellness professionals and healthcare partners making it Cincinnati’s largest and premier health event. The Health Expo is the Health Gap’s annual capstone highlighting the organization’s critical initiatives working to address and end health disparities in Cincinnati’s most vulnerable, minority populations. More than 84,000 people have benefited from the 30,000-plus free health screenings conducted since the event began.
