Health/Fitness Fair

PLAISTOW — The Timberlane Regional School District will hold its fourth annual Health and Fitness Fair on Wed., March 13, from 3:00-5:30 p.m. The health fair, which is free and open to the public, will take place at the Timberlane Regional High School, 36 Greenough Road in Plaistow.

There will be information on nutrition, diabetes awareness, concussion awareness, Lyme disease, blood pressure screenings, hearing screenings, acupuncture, naturopathic medicine, massage, health and fitness topics, and many more informative booths.

Also, the marrow registry, “Be the Match and Donate Life” organizations will be at the health fair. For those interested, it involves a simple cheek swab and is covered by most health insurance in NH, MA, Conn., and RI (please bring your health card). Michael’s Fund of Fall River, MA will cover the cost for those without coverage. You never know who in the Greater Timberlane Community you may be able to help.

Parkland Medical Center will be at the Fair with a da Vinci® Surgical System for attendees of all ages to test drive. The surgical robot consists of four robotic arms. One controls the camera, which provides three-dimensional vision, and the other three hold interchangeable instruments. The surgeon sits at a console near the bedside and manipulates special joysticks to control the robotic instruments.

In the event of inclement weather, the Fair will be held on Thurs., March 14.
