LRGHealthcare will be promoting “keeping you healthy” at the upcoming Choose Franklin Community Day on Saturday, May 12 from 9 am-3 pm at Odell Park in Franklin. This 8th annual event features the theme of Healthy Eating Active Living and representatives from LRGHealthcare will be present to provide free screenings, chair massage, and healthy eating tips to encourage healthy lifestyle. They will also have a float and employee participation in the parade through downtown Franklin which begins at 10:00 am, from the Franklin High School.
The theme was chosen because Franklin is celebrating the culmination of their three year, Healthy Eating Active Living (HEAL) grant from the Foundation for Healthy Communities. Many organizations, including LRGHealthcare, have been active partners in promoting use of our local trails and parks as well as adopting strategies to make healthy foods accessible and the easy choice.
LRGHealthcare has been part of the Choose Franklin Community Day planning committee each year and sees this day as a great opportunity for the area residents to get out, be active, and learn about important community resources!
For more information on Choose Franklin Community Day or HEAL please contact The Franklin Campus of the LRGHealthcare Office of Education at 934-2060 ext. 8369.
