Health Fair 2023

The 7th edition of the event features healthy eating workshops and free screenings

On March 31, Friday, the Parish Council of Matosinhos and Leça da Palmeira takes to Jardim Basílio Teles, in Matosinhos, the seventh edition of the Health Fair. The event will count with the presence of about 30 entities linked to health and many activities that will take place throughout the day in the

"Health Stage".

The Health Fair 2023 is organized by the Parish Council, which has the support of CMM and aims to promote health and well-being within the community of Matosinhos and Leça da Palmeira. Between 09h30 and 18h00, all interested parties will be able to get to know / benefit from different services and screenings. Cholesterol and diabetes assessment, nutrition, cognitive screening, mental health, blood pressure, and eye counseling are some of the services that will be available for free. The Health Stage will also feature a creative dance class, Yoga, the performance of the choral group "Voices of Afasia" and physical activity promoted by the Center for Walking and Running - Titans of Running. In addition to this program, there will also be showcookings of healthy food.

The Health Fair is an event that is already in its 7th edition and that annually welcomes hundreds of people. By providing free screenings and workshops, we are promoting and allowing many entities to publicize their work and above all, proactively, to encourage the regular "check-up" of our physical and mental health, said Paulo Carvalho, President of the Board.

In this context, it is also important to highlight the fact that the Junta de Freguesia will also promote, between March 31st and April 2nd, an online version of this event. During this period information will be shared about the entities that are part of the 2023 edition. This will be a way to strengthen and promote a close relationship between citizens and the respective entities.

The Health Fair 2023 will have free admission and will run from 10 am to 6 pm.
