Deborah Hosts Women’s Health Expo in Ocean County


TOMS RIVER – “Because You Matter” Deborah Heart and Lung Center is hosting a Women’s Health EXPO on Saturday, April 30 at Toms River Clarion on Route 37 West from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

The event offers a full range of health, wellness and fun activities. A wide range of free health tests will be available including blood pressure, pulse oximetry, body fat analysis, sleep apnea, peripheral arterial disease, lung and skin cancer and hearing. Additionally, physicians and healthcare professionals from the Deborah Heart and Lung Center will be on hand to discuss test results, discuss any ongoing health issues, and share nutrition, health, and wellness information. . The American Heart Association and Ocean County Office of Senior Services will also be available with extensive community health resources.

EXPO attendees will be able to shop more than a dozen vendors featuring the latest in handicrafts, cosmetics, jewelry, and homewares; plus enjoy a chair or arm/hand massage by therapists from the New Jersey School of Massage; a healthy cooking demonstration by Emmy award-winning chef Christina Pirello; or try a Reiki demonstration with Reiki Master Mary Petto.

The first 200 visitors will receive a goodie bag and gifts, and all attendees will have the chance to win a designer handbag.

“It’s vitally important that we bring women together to focus on themselves,” said Renee Bullock-Palmer, MD, director of Deborah’s Women’s Heart Center. “Women often put themselves last on the list, but we want them to take time for themselves, pause and take stock of their physical and emotional health. We are delighted to offer this opportunity to Toms River.

The Women’s Health EXPO is supported by event sponsor Janssen Pharmaceuticals and community partner OceanFirst Foundation. Additional support comes from Ariscare premium partners; Bayada Home Health Care; Hampton Behavioral Health Center; and the New Jersey School of Massage.

The Women’s EXPO is Saturday, April 30, 2022, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Toms River Clarion, 815 Route 37 West, Toms River, NJ 08755. For more information, call 609-893-3372. Deborah will follow all required COVID-19 protocols in place at the time of the event.
