After an absence of three years, the University Hospitals St. John Medical Center Safety and Wellness Day returned to the Westlake Recreation Center on Sat. 17 from 10-1.

“We couldn’t be more excited to be back out in the community and see the over 1,200 people that attended the Westlake Health & Safety Day!” said UH SJMC Director of Community Outreach Paul Forthofer. “We at University Hospitals LOVE our collaboration with the city of Westlake and especially the Rec. Center.

“A BIG Thank you to all of the local organizations that participated in the event! Get ready to see more events and screenings in the community as we expand our outreach!”

On hand were many health information tables, including the Seidman Cancer Center, where guests could receive answers to their questions from top medical experts.

“I am so happy to be here representing Seidman Cancer Center,” said Bryson Mackson, PCNA. “This is why I got into healthcare, being out in the community and educating people on what we offer and improving their health!

“It was so touching to hear how many people came up to me about the wonderful treatment they received at Seidman. I am very proud to be part of the Seidman team at UH St. John Medical Center!”

An inflatable brain and an inflatable heart added to the visual attractions as visitors picked up brochures and giveaways. Education activities and demonstrations were all part of the fun inside the Rec Center. Outside. Kids enjoyed touch-a-truck attractions provided by the city and food trucks. Hit of the day was the arrival of the University Hospitals helicopter.
