Salem, Mass. – On June 25 and 26, 2011, North Shore Medical Center (NSMC) will join NBC 7/CW 56 and Partners HealthCare for the fifth annual free Boston Health and Fitness Expo at Boston’s Hynes Convention Center.
This year NSMC will present information on the healthy eating habits, including portion sizes and couting calories. It is no secret that obesity is a growing epidemic in America, but there are some relatively simple changes people can make in their daily habits that can pay off quickly. NSMC will even let you experience the hit game “Dance Dance Revolution” and see just how many calories you can burn.
The Boston Health and Fitness Expo will also feature:
free medical tests and screenings
interactive sports, fitness, and health activities and demonstrations for the entire family
“Cooking with the Dish” healthy cooking demonstrations with 7 News anchor Frances Rivera and celebrity chefs
Celebrity guests from the sports and entertainment world including Patriots Linebacker Tedy Bruschi, "Big Baby" from the Boston Celtics, and all the 7 News on-air personalities.
Last year, more than 70,000 people from across New England attended this free event. The expo runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days.
