BISBEE — Bisbee will hold its first ever Health Expo later this month to showcase the diverse group of health and wellness providers that serve the Bisbee Community.

Organized by Bisbee Council woman Serena Sullivan, the event will feature 34 local practitioners who will each have a booth or table at the event and give brief Spotlight on Health talks throughout the day.

“I’ve always been interested in health and I think a lot of people don’t know all of the services we have here in Bisbee,” Sullivan said.

With no other events in January, and a time of new beginnings and New Year’s Resolutions, this month seemed the perfect time to hold the inaugural Bisbee Health Expo.

“For me, food and health are related,” she said. “I really came to food through health by wanting to live a healthier lifestyle and I wanted to showcase all the great services we have in Bisbee.”

Health services spotlighted will include body work like massage therapy, Reiki and rolfing; birth services and midwives, Alzheimers support, Alcoholics Anonymous, the Bisbee Farmer’s Market, the food coop, mental health services and Cenpatico, emergency medical services, colonics, hypnotherapy, psychiatry, dentistry, life coaching and others.

The event will be held from 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 16 at the Bisbee Convention Center.

In addition to health and wellness information, there will be raffles for health-related prizes valued at up to $150 each and live music from the Frytown Toughs.

The event is being sponsored by Copper Queen Community Hospital and hosted by the Bisbee Chamber of Commerce and Community Springboard.

“We are trying to entice the community to come out and “Take Control of (their) Health,” Sullivan said.
