Granville Health Fair

T he ballroom at the Granville Forum will serve as a hub for information on local healthcare options and information on medical issues from noon to 5 p.m. this Saturday, as the Forum hosts Health & Wellness Expo 2010.
The Forum’s Kevin Daigle said the Wellness Expo grew out of the Forum hosting the Adirondack Chamber of Commerce Expo.
“Granville is a hub for a lot of the smaller towns, but we also need to focus on businesses in the surrounding areas,” said Daigle, who added that he felt healthcare was a natural fit for such an event. “It is such a major issue today.”


The event will include information on nutrition, massage, physical therapy, chiropractic, acupuncture, doctors, exercise, hospital care, adult and nursing homes, and preventative medicine. There will be seminars and screenings as well. A 50/50 raffle is scheduled to benefit the Granville rescue squad.
Organizations which will be at the expo include Glens Falls Hospital, Rutland Regional Hospital, Mettowee Valley Family Health, Orchard Nursing Home, Queensbury Family Chiropractic, Granville Family Dentistry, Indian River Rehabilitation, Tackett Chiropractic, CDPHP Health Care, Natural Health Improvement Center and Granville Family Health, an affiliate of Glens Falls Hospital. Also attending are Ray Supply, MVP Health Care, Fidelis Health Care, an acupuncture studio, Straight Up Body, Greenwich Therapeutic Massage, Equinox Healing Therapies, Hudson Headwaters Healthcare Network, Unicity, the Pember Library, the Granville Chamber of Commerce and Forum Health and Fitness.
There will also be seven half-hour seminars on health-related issues held during the event.
At 1 p.m., Dr. Kevin Gallagher of Granville Family Health will discuss “Tick Bites and Lyme Disease,” followed by a representative of Rutland Regional discussing bone marrow. At 2 p.m., Queensbury Family Chiropractic will have a presentation on ‘How to beat the flu naturally,’ followed by physical therapist Donna Johnson discussing balance, falls and home safety.” At 3 p.m., a representative from Ray Supply will talk about its remote sensing devices for elderly care, and then Fidelis will present on free and low-cost health insurance. At 4 p.m., Cyndy Shaw from Equinox Healing Therapies will talk about hand-on, body to body healing and zero balancing.
The seminar schedule will be posted, and all those attending will receive a free program that will include the schedule and information on all the exhibitors.
The event will also feature a series of giveaways, including one night for a family of four at Great Escape, four Great Escape passes, three passes to Sagamore Golf Club, a $50 gift certificate to the Saratoga Winery, a four-pack of tickets to the Adirondack Phantoms and gift certificates to local restaurants.
