Currently have the usual vendors: doctors, massage therapists, fitness gyms,etc. Didn't know if anyone had any possible unique vendor ideas I may be overlooking. I would like to make this as interactive for the employees as possible. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thank you.

I was thinking of anything to do with elder care, life planning, organizations like American Heart Association, etc. If your local hospital has something like a senior health department, they might publish some type of directory that might help spark some ideas. Good luck!!
- Jul 18, '12 by 1wellnessnursefor my last health fair, i changed the tonefrom just medical to whole health (mind and body balance). i highlighted the importance of work/lifebalance, reduction of stress, and participation in diversionary activities. i felt that by making wellnes fun, i would have a better participation. my vendors included golfing, sailing instruction, cooking classes, aesthetician,etc. (along with the usual participants).
i received positive feedback from the employees. they said things like, thiswas the first time a health fair was fun! popcorn machines can be a good draw too (encouraging healthy snacks).
