Carlyle Place Rally for Wellness

Market-like Atmosphere for this Annual Health Fair MACON, GA (May 3, 2011) - Rally for Wellness combines traditional elements of a health fair, such as health screenings and education, with a market-like atmosphere of demonstrations, workshops, produce and dairy sales, and a guest speaker, to create a unique experience for the central Georgia community. The third annual event is Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Carlyle Place, a continuing care retirement community and service of The Medical Center of Central Georgia, 5300 Zebulon Rd. in Macon. The festive setting will include two healthy cooking demonstrations by Carlyle Place chefs who will offer tips and recipes for better eating habits. A gardening demonstration will help facilitate decisions in planning and growing plants and gardens in containers. Understanding and embracing social media, and some basic usage tips to stay in contact with family and friends, will be taught in a Facebook and technology workshop. The produce and dairy market will feature Georgia-made cheeses. Local author Ed Grisamore will lead an informal discussion and share stories at 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Health screenings include blood pressure, pulse and weight, body mass index, blood sugar, pulse oximeter, posture analysis and venous disease screenings. Carlyle Place will feature a booth with information about its lifestyle experience, comprehensive health care services and living amenities. Golden Opportunities, a service committed to providing a better quality of life for adults 55 and older, and the Georgia Neuro Center are two of more than 20 vendors who will be present. A massage therapist, chiropractor, dentist and optometrist will also be in attendance. The Carlyle Place dining staff will also serve smoothies in the courtyard during the event.
