Bothwell Regional Health Center will host HealthFest 2015 from 8 a.m. to noon this Saturday, October 17, in the Bothwell Education Center, across the street from the hospital at 600 East 14th Street.

Bothwell is celebrating its 85th anniversary this year. Some people have a huge party with a historic event like this. Instead of a party they figured the Healthfest 2015 was a great way to celebrate and help others in the community and around the Sedalia area.

Free health screenings, educational presentations, and other activities including a brown bag special where a pharmacist will review your medications for possible interactions, will be held from 8 a.m. to noon.

Bothwell Regional Health Center opened its doors in 1930 as John H. Bothwell Memorial Hospital, named after a Sedalia attorney and philanthropist who was a key financial contributor to construction of the hospital.
