Franklin Memorial hosts after-hours chamber event

Franklin Memorial Hospital in Farmington welcomed more than 60 Franklin County Chamber of Commerce members to its business-after-hours health fair on June 21.

The Healthy Community Coalition had its Mobile Health Unit near the hospital’s main entrance, where visitors dropped in to have a body composition analysis performed that breaks down body weight into percentages of fat, lean body mass, minerals and water.

Inside were healthy snack samples with recipes, worksite wellness information, staff members from the Let’s Go Small Steps Program with a sugar display, assistance with advance directives, a NorthStar training demonstration, prescription assistance, a medication jeopardy game, and a spinning health quiz. Refreshments included fruit-infused water and a colorful buffet of fruit, vegetables and hearty appetizers.

Rebecca Wood, FMH vice president of patient care services and chief nursing officer, took 15 attendees on a tour of the Maternal and Child Health Unit and the Surgical Services Unit.

The auxiliary’s gift shop provided a door prize to participant Robert Lively, of Wilton.
