Baylor Scott & White Health and Wellness Center’s Health and Wellness Expo on Saturday was an event for the entire family, complete with free Flu Shots and COVID-19 Vaccines, health screenings, fitness challenges, cooking demonstrations with Chef Carmen, packaged food samples and recipes, a farm stand with bags of produce, swag bags and giveaways.

Founded in 2010, the Baylor Scott & White Health and Wellness Center at Juanita J. Craft Recreation Center, formerly known as the Diabetes Health and Wellness Institute (DHWI), is a collaboration between Baylor Scott & White Health and the City of Dallas to provide access to quality health care.

The goal is to harvest healthy behaviors and attitudes, promote awareness and fund programs to help prevent and fight chronic diseases, including diabetes, hypertension and kidney disease, in North Texas.
