Employees Make Healthy Family FunFest a Success

The Hospital of Central Connecticut (HOCC) and MidState Medical Center participated in the annual Healthy Family FunFest event at the Aqua Turf club in Southington. It was a fun-filled day of games, activities, obstacle courses, health information, screenings, demonstrations, and giveaways for everyone from children to seniors.

This year, over 4,000 community members visited the festival, which is hosted by HOCC, Hartford HealthCare (HHC) Senior Services, and the Southington-Cheshire Community YMCAs. Healthy Family FunFest was created to promote a healthy lifestyle in the community – from eating better, to learning about green energy, to physical/mental well-being and beyond. HHC practitioners and experts were able to provide information about their practices while having the opportunity to answers questions from thousands of residents across the region.
