BRIDGEPORT—State Senators Ed Gomes (D-Bridgeport) and Marilyn Moore (D-Bridgeport) today hosted their first city-wide health and wellness fair at Housatonic Community College. Bridgeport residents arrived at the college’s Beacon Hall to learn more about how they can live longer healthier lives.

The day’s participants enjoyed healthy cooking demonstrations given by Bridgeport native Chef Lorri Wilson, free health screenings by Optimus Healthcare, and free flu shots on behalf of Walgreens pharmacy.

“Today’s health and wellness fair was designed to help residents navigate the various ways in which they can achieve a better quality of life,” said Sen. Moore. “We often hear about how important living a healthy lifestyle is for longevity, our goal here was to provide a space where members of the community could talk with their local health professionals, vendors and community organizations about creating a healthier lifestyle for themselves and their families.” “It is vital that community stakeholders provide residents with the resources they need to lead healthy lives,” said Sen. Gomes. “Today, critical health and wellness information was provided to residents of Bridgeport all in one place. I was even able to get my annual flu shot.”

“It’s rare that we see wellness fairs with all these organizations in one place in, I’m glad I came out,” said Brian Johnson, a Bridgeport resident. “Today I was able to have my blood pressure checked and learned that I don’t have to eat less to be healthy.”
