Local health insurance agency Nelson and Associates Insurance has partnered with the YMCA at Wildlight to host the 2nd Annual Health and Safety Expo in Nassau County.
Nelson and Associates Insurance is a health insurance agency offering quality, affordable healthcare coverage along with providing education, resources and community outreach. The Expo was born from an idea that CEO Kimberly Branham-Nelson had and was fueled by her passion for her community and her background in education.
The 1st Annual Health and Safety Expo proved to be a successful giveback, and with the help of volunteers, 30+ Non-Profit organizations, and Vendors, the collaboration was able to offer 131 FREE Sports Physicals, host 3 Community Fundraisers, and give out over 100 Bags of Food. Last year, the expo was hosted at the Northeast Florida Fairgrounds, however, this year, it has moved to a centralized location to better serve as a mid-point for all Nassau County residents.
This one-day event will be packed full of health and safety providers, resources, services, and local non-profit organizations offering valuable education sessions and tools for maintaining a safe and healthier you. In addition, the opportunity to meet the great community of Nassau County will be the focus of the event.
There are some new additions coming to this year’s Expo. The Baptist MD Anderson Cancer Center's Buddy Bus will be set up for the event to conduct mobile mammograms. These must be scheduled in advance, as spots are limited. You can find full details on how to register HERE.
The Alzheimer's Association will also be sending one of their Brain Bus vehicles, and the YMCA of Wildlight will be offering a free class schedule on the day of the event. The schedule includes Bodypump (10:00 a.m. - 10:30 a.m.), Zumba (10:35 a.m. - 11:05 a.m.), Body Combat (11:10 a.m. - 11:40 a.m.) and Body Balance (11:40 a.m. - 12:10 p.m.).
Nelson and Associates Insurance is grateful for the support of this year's expo sponsors, UFHealth of Jacksonville, YMCA Wildlight, Florida Blue and Millenium Physician’s Group. This is a resource for all ages. Come visit the vendor booths, learn about the resources provided by local nonprofits and enjoy delicious food trucks while you are there.
This Free, one-day event will be held on Saturday, June 24, 2023, at the YMCA at Wildlight from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
