Join us Wednesday, May 11, 2016, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Jim Graham Building at the NC State Fairgrounds for a wide variety of wellness, health, and safety information. Through demonstrations, exhibits, screenings, and safety simulations 150+ exhibitors will provide information on health care, fitness, nutrition, financial wellness, hands-only CPR, fire extinguisher training, and driver safety.
