HILL AIR FORCE BASE — Being resilient not only helps improve health and well being, it also helps you face stress and changes in life.
This year’s Community Outreach/Resiliency Expo will have more than 90 vendors dedicated to helping the physical and mental wellness of event-goers.
“This year’s event is bigger and better than ever before,” said LaRue “Soup” Campbell, who along with Paula Speth helped to organize the Expo. “It’s like a one-stop shop for the military and their families as well as civilians. Anyone who wants to learn more about physical and mental health as well as travel opportunities will find what they’re looking for here.”
The Expo will include vendors from Davis Hospital and Medical Center, NAMI, Utah ski resorts and other recreation outlets as well as entertainment and travel discount tickets.
“We will offer a lot of discounts and options for people who want or need a vacation,” Speth said.
Campbell said it’s important to emphasize wellness in the community so everyone can be more productive and feel better about themselves.
“Sometimes people are afraid to ask questions so we will have various entities here to address many of those issue that surround physical health as well as mental health and even addictions,” he said. “We will also have a variety of educational options and vendors for people to look into.”
There will also be a free showing of Warren Miller’s Ticket to Ride, which usually costs around $30. The show highlights a worldwide tour of exotic locations with the sport’s best skiers and snowboarders.
The Expo will be Nov. 19 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Warrior Fitness Center.
