It's hard to believe that the 2012 SEIU Convention is less than one week away! As we think about the themes for the convention - winning jobs and dignity for the 99% - it's hard not to think about health and health care as vitally important to these goals.
We cannot assure a thriving middle class without access to affordable, high quality health care and a healthy population. That's why we're holding a Health Care Expo on Sunday, May 27th from 12 pm to 6:30 pm in Lobby "F" of the Denver Convention Center. The theme of the Expo is 'building healthier communities and preventing chronic disease.'
The Expo is open to everyone and admission is free. Visit the Expo to learn about preventing chronic disease and new ways to get active. There will be free self-health assessments, Zumba, Tai Chi, Resistance Band, and Line Dancing exhibitions and the chance to get moving with a 20-minute guided Fitness Walk around downtown Denver.
At the Expo you'll also be able to visit more than 20 exhibition booths to hear about the work of SEIU Healthcare members, learn how to advocate for better health in your community and find out how Obamacare is benefitting your family.
To register in advance for the Expo, visit www.seiu2012.org/healthcareexpo. Doors open at 12 pm! We hope to see you there!
