Some of the industries biggest names were on hand to support the 1st of CARE of Southeast Michigan’s Health and Wellness Fair at the MISD in Clinton Township on Monday, August 24th.
The goal was important: ‘to connect individuals recovering from substance use disorders to holistic and wellness focused community resources’. The fair was partnered with CARE’s Greater Macomb Project VOX, ‘a grassroots organization dedicated to increasing the public awareness and understanding of domestic violence through education, community engagement, collective action, and empowering individual voices to help end the silence surrounding domestic violence’.
Mark Kilgore, Event Coordinator and Community Organizer for the nearly 40 year old non-profit stated, “We feel that for a first year event, it’s been successful. The turn out and interest is definitely there and we had to turn vendors away. Next year the room will be set up differently to accommodate the organizations that weren’t able to be represented.”
Being housed at the Macomb Intermediate School Districts building was also a genius move, allowing those in the educational field a first hand experience of the industry. The early afternoon also brought a local live-in rehab centers residents to the event and one gentlemen even rode his bike 7 miles to come to learn more about natural wellness and the latest services.
The no cost event brought a myriad of modalities and services, including hands on demonstrations of Massage from Stefany Die Giudici from Total Health Systems, Pranic Healing from The Mind’s Eye Bookstore and Wellness Center, and the latest scientific technology for accelerating healing from BEMER’s Deborah Oliver.
Exhibitors on hand were: St. John Providence Hospital, the Macomb County Health Department, Trinity Christian Counseling, Young Living Essential Oils, Eximius Chiropractic, Eastwood Clinics, Advantage Health Centers, Community Mental Health Access, Khalil Family Wellness & Intervention, Santosha Yoga LLC, Beaumont Integrative Medicine/Massage Therapy, BEMER America, McLaren: Diabetes Education, MyCare Health Center, Macomb County Dignity Memorial Providers, Costco Wholesale #374, Traveling Christian Science Reading Room, The Minds Eye Bookstore and Wellness Center, Henry Ford Macomb Hospital, Wisdom Point Wellness, and Total Health Systems
