Community Wellness Festival

The ongoing COVID pandemic means that the Valley Health Community Wellness Festival is being reimagined again this year. In place of the traditional one-day event, this year’s festival will be a week of health screenings held in a storefront in Apple Blossom Mall in Winchester, Virginia from Saturday, March 19 through Saturday, March 26. This approach will provide our community with access to free and reduced cost health screenings in a controlled and safe manner. Whenever possible the screenings will be offered on an appointment basis.

We anticipate offering the following free or low cost screenings as part of the 2022 Festival:

  • Saturday, March 19: Blood Testing from Valley Health Lab Services (9 AM - 1 PM, no appointment needed. Guests arriving before 10 AM should use the H&R Block mall entrance.)
    • Unable to make it out to the festival on March 19? Discount vouchers will also be available for sale at convenient locations across the area.
  • Monday, March 21: Consultations with a Dietitian | Valley Health Wellness Services. (All appointments have been reserved.)
  • Tuesday, March 22: Heart Attack Risk Program | Valley Health Wellness Services (10 AM - 1 PM, 12-hour fast required. All appointments have been reserved.)
  • Tuesday, March 22: Wellness Checks for Kids | Shenandoah University Nursing (1 - 5 PM)
  • Thursday, March 24: Blood Glucose and Blood Pressure Screenings | Shenandoah University Nursing / Patient Education and Medication Review | Shenandoah University School of Pharmacy (11 AM - 4 PM)
  • Friday, March 25: Blood Glucose and Blood Pressure Screenings | Shenandoah University Nursing / Patient Education and Medication Review | Shenandoah University School of Pharmacy (11 AM - 4 PM)
  • Saturday, March 26: Cardiovascular Screenings (Carotid and EKG) and Hands Only CPR Training | Valley Health Heart & Vascular (As of Monday, March 21, all EKG and carotid screening appointments have been filled.)
