The 11th annual B’More Healthy Expo will be held at the Baltimore Convention Center, located in the heart of downtown Baltimore near the world-renowned Inner Harbor and historic Little Italy. The Expo is Maryland’s largest health fair, designed to entertain, engage, educate and empower families to take actions and make choices to be more healthy. The event will provide the opportunity for attendees to connect with health and wellness providers and learn about products and services to help them achieve their wellness goals. FOX45/CW will begin an aggressive, market-wide on-air and online attendance promotion four weeks in advance of the expo, which will once again drive a projected 30,000+ Baltimore area attendees to this exciting event. The National Kidney Foundation Serving Maryland & Delaware are pleased to once again be a vendor at this event! Interested in volunteering? Click here to complete the volunteer form.
