At UCLA Health's "Doctor Zone," doctors provided one on one advice to people with medical questions. Skin screening and Body Mass Index measurement were available for free. Forty different vendors provided information and free promotional items to attendees. Health care providers included dentists, chiropractors, podiatrists, sleep therapists, elder care specialists, nutritionists, hypnotherapists, psychiatric care, acupuncturists, home health, fitness, and tobacco prevention. Whatever your health and fitness issue might be, there was someone there to help.
Chiropractor David Biedebach, who has been a sponsor every year since the Health Expo began, said, "It's a great event, I wouldn't miss it." First time sponsor, Podiatrist Leonora Fishman was busy helping people with foot concerns, while dentist Brett Egelske was telling people how to get emergency, or after hour dental care. All in all, a lot of people had their health care questions answered and many found help with their specific concerns.
