Health information and displays on heart risk factors, stroke awareness, healthy eating, diabetes, cancer and more will also be available. Vendors will include health care providers, nonprofit organizations and private businesses that provide services for the community.
For sports fans, Washington Redskins Cornerback Fabian Moreau will sign autographs from 10:30 a.m. until noon. Community members are encouraged to bring an item for Moreau to sign. Autographs are free, but merchandise will not be sold at the event. In order to give everyone a chance to meet Moreau, autographs will be limited to one per person.
