06 Sep The Downtown Phoenix Wellness Market
The Downtown Phoenix Wellness Market is going to be held in the heart of downtown Phoenix hosted in conjunction with the University of Arizona College of Medicine Phoenix -Wellness Program! It will be on the Phoenix Biomedical Campus in front of the Health Sciences Education Building. A wellness market will have local and healthy produce like a farmers market, but we will have healthcare professionals available for health screenings and even talks! We are pushing the message that food is medicine! Each month would be a different wellness theme such as October would be breast cancer awareness. We will have talks and education such as eating fruits and produce that are orange in color can reduce your risk of breast cancer by 20%.
Our first wellness market will be on October 9th from 10am-1:30pm and is free for the public to attend. This will be a monthly event on the second Tuesday of the month. I believe the wellness market will be an unique addition to downtown Phoenix and a pilot concept to improve community health. I would appreciate it if you are able to share with your community.
