The third annual Stamford Hospital health, wellness and sports expo returned to Chelsea piers Connecticut this weekend. Attracting thousands of attendees, the event featured over 80 exhibitors, demonstrations, and free health screenings. 

“We really believe in the importance of health and wellness and first and foremost, through prevention and through identifying the risk factors,” says Vicki Hoffman, Director of the Orthopedic Service Line at Stamford Hospital. “We have health screenings here today where we’re doing blood pressure, glucose, cholesterol, cardiac stroke risk assessments, pulmonary function tests. We also had our mobile wellness van here today and they were doing mammograms. The more you hear, the more you know that you can bring in and make a part of you everyday life, just to live an overall healthier life.”
