My daughter Ally and I took a trip to Hartford to attend the NBC Connecticut Health and Wellness Festival this weekend. The Festival was full of wellness screenings, health information, and all kinds of people to talk about about healthy living!
We spent a few hours there and I still didn’t get to see every thing available at the health and Wellness Festival. I had a chance to have a kidney health assessment, (I’m good, but SURPRISE, I need to lose weight) and I spoke to so many people! I was very excited so see some causes close to my heart,( and health history ). I spent some time talking and learning from Connecticut Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation, and the Ovarian Cancer awareness booth .A quick look at just a bit of the stuff available:

There was plenty of entertainment for kids, too. Cart games, a train ride and lots of information and great local talent. I even met Supercow at the Guida’s Milk booth!
Not to mention that I got to see my favorite NBC Connecticut people including the beautiful and talented Stephania Jimenez who was the reporter who interviewed Ally for the Making A Difference Segment.
I love having a local station that cares about my passion: health and fitness. We had such a great time meeting so many wonderful people and I’m looking forward to reading and researching more of the information I took home with me,.
