2008 Live It Up! Health Fair/Expo
Evansville Cancer Center/Vantage Oncology was proud to be a sponsor of the Live it Up! Health Fair/Expo which was presented by the Evansville Courier & Press, courierpress.com and Healthier Evansville on Saturday, January 12th, 2008 at The Centre - Downtown.
The mission of Live It Up! was to promote healthy living, family fun and a zest for life throughout the community. The event was for people of all ages, especially those who have made a New Year's resolution to get healthy and stay healthy and drew a crowd of over 3,000 people!
The event promoted overall health awareness by providing a day full of activities, demonstrations, speakers, tests and screenings and exhibits such as a rock climbing wall, health pavilions, dance and cheer routines, spas, scuba diving, martial arts, sports medicine, kickboxing, weight loss, bicycling, walking track, golf and much more.
Evansville Cancer Center/Vantage Oncology had the DermaScan on hand which allowed people to look at their faces to see the damage they had caused by ultraviolet radiation either from the sun or from the use of tanning beds. The staff of Evansville Cancer Center helped kids make bracelets out of UV sensitive beads and gave out free sunscreen provided courtesy of Blue Lizard Australian Suncream. In addition to skin cancer information, educational materials were available on all types of cancers.
