As quoted from the Orleans on-line:
“Over 1,000 people flocked to the Shenkman Arts Centre on Saturday to get some tips on how to live a healthier, fitter and more well-rounded life during the Orléans Wellness Expo. Dr. Nathalie Beauchamnp and Deborah MacDonald are the two women behind the Wellness Expo. After four years at le Centre culturel MIFO on Carriere Street, they decided to move the event to the Shenkman Arts Centre in order to give the Expo a higher profile and attract more exhibitors and visitors. They accomplished both goals with flying colours. They more than doubled the number of exhibitors going from 43 last year to more than 92 this year. They also scheduled more demonstrations and more speakers all of which had the affect of tripling attendance. Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson was also on hand to present Dr. Nathalie Beauchamp and Deborah MacDonald with a special placque designating January as Health and Wellness Month in Ottawa.”
Thank you to our sponsors, exhibitors, volunteers and all attendees for helping us bring wellness into our community!
Be Fit • Eat Right • Think Well • Go Green
See you all next year!
Dr. Nathalie and Deborah
