Why this Initiative?

There has been considerable advancement in modern medicine and at the same time a huge amount of research surfaces daily. Such exciting times yet people are more sick than ever before with nearly 40% of the population facing some or the other health issue which can be either avoided or easily managed with the right information, routine and medication.

Our Vision

A Healthier and happier community! Bridging the gap between numerous health options, new innovations and people who are seeking physical and mental well-being.

Approach

The Plano Health Fair is our starting point, a new beginning for getting into the consciousness of Health, of starting to utilize what we have – The most advanced medical help in the world with state of the art facilities within reach, Medical insurance and providers a phone call away, fitness centers and gyms in every city by the dozens and pharmacies and local doctors on every corner. This event is to encourage everyone to step out and seek help – whatever the issues might be, constant research and help is at hand, we need to be informed of our choices, because in the end, what matters is the good health and the quality of life – that quality can be greatly enhanced with information, with knowledge.

Meet the Team

The Plano Health Fair has been put together by an event management experienced team of individuals whose heartfelt intention is to make our community a healthier and vibrant place to be in. We have been engaged in creating and holding events successfully in the Dallas Metroplex now for the past 6 years.
