Healthy Encores Health Fair

Healthy Encores, non-profit organization in the US Virgin Islands (USVI) in conjunction with the Lifestyle Festival has created an annual health awareness program for residents living in the USVI. Each year, during the month of July, health professionals and volunteers provide health education, nutritional assessments and health screening services to the residents and visitors of the Virgin Islands.

People come to the mall to observe and participate in the various opportunities to get healthy. They register and participate in the health screenings.

The annual event serves an under-serve community. It’s a fulfillment of a need within the local community for preventive healthcare services and access to quality care. The success of the health fair event is made possible due to volunteers, partnerships with other organizations as well as corporate and individual sponsors. Exhibitors provide health information and giveaways to participants.

Service Offerings and Screenings

The Healthy Encores planning committee offer health education seminars to educate people on the importance of healthy living. These seminars provide an opportunity for health information to be disseminated to the community even if they were not involved in the health screening.

The wellness demonstrations such as cooking and exercise illustrations are held in the center court of the mall.

The health service and screenings allowed participants to move among the stations to receive health information or have a screening performed.
