Dr. James Marcum, voted by USA Today as one of the most influential physicians in his field, is coming to Beaufort to help those looking to make a new start in the New Year.
Dr. Marcum will present six free health seminars at the “New Year, New Start, New You!” Health Fair & Blood Drive on Sunday, January 12 at the Beaufort Seventh-day Adventist Church. Dr. Marcum, a practicing cardiologist and author of the books “The Ultimate Prescription” and “Medicines that Kill,” will provide practical, self-empowering information on a variety of topics, including heart care, cancer prevention, reversing diabetes, and effective long-term weight loss. After each presentation Dr. Marcum will answer audience questions, as he does every week on his nationwide radio and television programs “Heartwise” and “The Heart of Health LIVE!”, respectively.
Free health services will be offered in addition to Dr. Marcum’s seminars. Lauren Scholar, an occupational therapist and pain management specialist, will consult with those who suffer from pain in their joints, muscle, and soft tissue. NuVision personal trainers will provide free weight and body fat percentage assessments. Attendees can also have their blood pressure and glucose levels checked, as well as learn what their real health age is. The Omni Health & Fitness Center will provide free two week memberships to all who attend the fair.
“This health fair is designed to help someone know where they are with their health and then learn what specific steps within their control can be taken to feel and function better,” said Pastor Jason Belyeu. “No one needs to perish for lack of knowledge.”
The Blood Alliance’s mobile unit will also be on site from 10 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. with a goal of receiving 23 donations. Every person who donates blood at the health fair will have a chance to win a $25 VISA gift card. Reservations to donate can be made online at www.igiveblood.com.
