Glenwood Springs health expo seeks volunteers
Post Independent Contributor
GLENWOOD SPRINGS — If you’d like to learn more about integrative health and preventative wellness solutions that also complement traditional Western medicine practices, you won’t want to miss the fourth annual Health and Wellness Expo being held in May at the Ramada Inn & Suites in Glenwood Springs.
Volunteers are being sought now in preparation for the day-long event that attracts vendors and attendees from around the valley including Eagle, Aspen, Basalt and Grand Junction.
“We have more than 40 exhibitors that are all locally based,” said Kimberly Henrie, one of the founding members of the expo. “The event is free to the public, and people can walk through and look at the exhibits and try some experiential things.”
Booths will be set up with personal trainers, energy healers, nutritional supplements, natural soaps, essential oils, mental health counselors, medicinal jewelry, ADD and HDAD information, Roffiter system bodyworks and massage, brain integration, angel card readings with a psychic, mastermind and holistic sessions and more.
Speakers will also be presenting throughout the day on a variety of health and wellness topics.
“Our goal is to provide people with education about the market that is available to them,” Henrie said. “When you feel ill, most of us go straight to a general practitioner. But there are other things you can do as well — there are lots of alternatives.”
The 2014 Health and Wellness Expo will be from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 10, at the Ramada Inn. Volunteers are needed for four-hour shifts, either from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. or 1-5 p.m., to act as greeters, runners, announcers, door-prize coordinators and more. Volunteers will be provided with breakfast or lunch (depending on their shift) and will be eligible for door prizes and up close and personal access to the event.
“We’re hoping to get about 18 volunteers, who will also be able to answer questions about the event and to provide information,” Henrie said.
Those interested should contact Dr. Stephanie Stanfield of Living Your Present Moment at (970) 987-5029. For more information, visit healthandwellnessexpogws.com.

Policy that dictates what for-profit activities should be officially sanctioned within Glenwood Springs parks is being reviewed by city staff and will likely come before the city council for final approval later this summer.
