Annual Event Provided Family Fun for Everyone
Check it out: Seven-year-old, Amelia Taibi, had such a good time at the 2017 RVNA Health & Wellness Fair last April that RVNAhealth made it onto her All About Me favorites chart printed in the school yearbook (see bottom left in photo) – along with pizza and Chinese checkers!
“She said it was ‘the best thing she did all year,’ ” laughs her mom Danielle, an RVNA occupational therapist who brought her husband and children along to the annual Health Fair for a bit of Saturday family fun.
Says Amelia, “I loved petting the [therapy] dogs, and coloring in the books that the nurse gave me. I also loved guessing how many beans were in the jar [at the massage table]. It was cool to get my eyes tested with a camera and to see Elmo help my 2-year-old brother, Luca, look at the camera for his eye test!”
“The Health Fair really made an impact on Amelia,” says Danielle, “it was both incredibly fun and secretly educational. And I think she also loved the bag of goodies she left with. It was like Halloween for her!”
“Next year, she’s bringing friends!”
