The City of Marietta and WellStar Kennestone Regional Medical Center are excited to announce a partnership to provide a community wellness initiative for the citizens who live and work in Marietta.
A variety of health programs and services will be provided, with the goal of identifying and reducing disease risk, while empowering people to make healthy lifestyle changes that will improve their quality of life.
We invite you to join us for the Live Well Marietta Kick-Off Event at the Marietta Farmer's Market. This is a family-friendly event and we encourage you to come out and enjoy the programs and demonstrations that will be offered throughout the morning.
Free biometric screenings will be provided to community members including cholesterol and glucose fingersticks and blood pressure screenings. Complimentary seminars, presented by WellStar's network of experienced healthcare providers, will bring expert-level health education to the Square.
A cooking demonstration, hosted by Chef Ben Behimer, Executive Chef of WellStar Kennestone Regional Medical Center, will show tasty and healthy ways to utilize locally grown ingredients.
Community members can calm their spirits, while improving strength, flexibility, balance and overall coordination during a yoga demonstration. In addition, participants will be led by a WellStar Health Place group fitness instructor, in an overall physical activity demonstration that will teach Zumba exercises that the whole family can enjoy.
