Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (PCOM) will hold its first Wellness Fest, title sponsored by Independence Blue Cross, on Saturday, September 22 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the College’s City Avenue campus. The event will feature health screenings and fitness classes, cooking demonstrations, live entertainment and local food trucks. Free parking will be available.

The event will also feature a Kids’ Zone with several activities for children, including a Mobile Teaching Kitchen courtesy of Vetri Family Partnerships, and the Philadelphia Free Library’s Book Bike and story time.

The entire event is free, but registration is strongly encouraged.

“PCOM Wellness Fest provides the perfect opportunity for us to share the osteopathic philosophy of whole-person health with our community,” said Jay S. Feldstein, DO ’81, president and CEO. “We want the entire family to come have fun, learn about living a healthy lifestyle, and then apply that knowledge in their daily lives.”

Proceeds raised from Wellness Fest sponsors will benefit PCOM Healthcare Centers, which provide care to underserved populations in Philadelphia and rural Pennsylvania and serve as training sites for the College’s doctor of osteopathic medicine and psychology students.

Additional sponsors of PCOM Wellness Fest include Blank Rome, LLP; Cozen O’Connor; the National Network of Libraries of Medicine; MassMutual Greater Philadelphia; MKM Foundation; Office Depot; Elliott-Lewis Corp. and PNC Bank.
