NBC4 Health and Fitness Expo today: some focus on mental health


Today, I did attend the NBC4 Health and Fitness Expo in the Convention Center in Washington DC.  It also runs Sunday until 4 PM (when the Redskin playoff game starts).

I did catch a mental health symposium, in which a college student said that most students have to wait a long time before getting an appointment with a mental health professional on most campuses.

There was also a discussion of Maryland’s mental health programs, with the introduction of the concept of “family navigator”.

There was a small “Healthy Book Festival” which I will soon cover on my Books blog.
 
There was a “Recruiter” car for a volunteer fire/ems department in Prince George’s County.
