The fair will celebrate Live Well San Diego, the County’s ongoing initiative to improve health and safety of residents in the region. In the spirit of Live Well San Diego and due to limited parking, visitors are encouraged to walk, ride a bike or use public transportation to come to the fair. The event is free and open to the public.
“People can check their ‘mood’ and their blood pressure completely free,” said Chairman Greg Cox, County Board of Supervisors. “The fair is also a great opportunity for the public to learn about Live Well San Diego and how they can get involved. Everyone is welcome!”
The first 100 people to arrive will receive a calorie-counting jump rope. Visitors will also be able to meet representatives of County departments and community organizations that have signed on as Live Well San Diego partners.
“Live Well San Diego is a collective effort that involves local residents, healthcare providers, cities, community organizations, schools, businesses and many other partners,” said Nick Macchione, director of the County Health and Human Services Agency. “By working together, we can achieve meaningful change and improve the lives of San Diego County residents.”
