The University of Vermont Health Network - Elizabethtown Community Hospital hosts special events and programs throughout the year. Join us for our annual Women’s Health Fair or Community Fun Day, where you can learn more about hospital services and health resources and enjoy fun games and prizes. Free community programs, including Wellness Rx and our Diabetes Support Group, offer access to expert advice and nutritious foods.
The first ever Community Fun Day was held in June 2019 at Moriah Central School. Over 100 participants enjoyed refreshments, raffle prizes including bicycles and helmets, health and safety vendor booths and family-oriented activities. Be sure to check our calendar for details on the next Community Fun Day.
Studies have shown that diet plays a key role in chronic disease management and prevention. The Wellness Rx program was created in partnership with the Essex County Well Fed Collaborative, Better Choice Retailers and local farmers to increase affordable access to healthy foods and nutritional education.
