Health fairs are often organized by the human resource departments of large corporations. They are often run by professional health fair organization companies but can also be done by medical providers, benefits directors, medical students or nurses.
Health fairs are typically offered in the community, on site corporations, work sites, churches or schools. They consist of a variety of vendors and exhibitors including providers of stress management massage and the best corporate chair massage – www.eventschairmassage.com. – that educate on all aspects of health, wellness, fitness and lifestyle improvements. Topics can include such things as chiropractic, acupuncture, fitness clubs and hospitals. It is very common to see health screenings such as cholesterol testing or blood pressure screenings. Health Fairs are advertised and promoted ahead of time by print media, radio, or television and are usually a one-day event.
Ultimately a health fair is an educational and interactive event designed for outreach to provide basic preventive medicine and medical screening to people in the community or employees at work in conjunction with workplace wellness. It can also be a public health intervention.
Some health fairs promote unnecessary and potentially harmful testing.
Some tests performed are actually not screening tests, like weight and blood pressure, which are appropriate screening tests for the general population. Instead, they are specialized tests, like vascular ultrasound, which are only appropriate for patients with relevant risk factors. When these tests are performed on the general population, they lead to false positive diagnoses, and dangerous and expensive follow-up testing, which have a risk of strokes and death. Many doctors feel that it is unethical for hospitals and doctors to cooperate with commercial testing services that market directly to the consumer, especially since many of the marketing claims are false.
When our chair massage team worked this event at the NYC Javit’s Convention Center many of our corporate clients through www.eventschairmassage.com have expressed an interest in human resources dept. organized health fairs.
