Music echoed through Franciscan Health Fitness Centers on Thursday night, September 19, 2019, as some 300 participants worked up a sweat in between health screenings, snacks and shopping at the annual "Just Dance" fitness event.
The free event sponsored by Franciscan Health and ArcelorMittal emphasized overall wellness and the ways Franciscan Health can be a partner not only in physical health, but overall health, including mental and spiritual. Fitness instructors led dance routines that got the blood pumping and screeners were available to check blood pressure and other factors. The numbers of participants screened included:
73 lung screenings
133 blood glucose screenings
64 skin cancer spot checks
86 body fat analyses
110 balance/fall risk assessments
88 podiatry screenings
125 pulse oximetry screenings
142 bone density screenings
Attendees received free gifts, browsed products from several regional vendors, and enjoyed giveaways, refreshments, chair massages, health club tours, spinning demonstrations/classes and a free one of a kind Mirror Photo Booth by Chicago Mirror Booth.
