Organizations are hosting educational health fairs at the workplace so their employees may have the opportunity to learn about the variety of wellness options available to them. Providers allow these employer groups to present these services by exhibiting at their health fair. This gives providers an opportunity to get face-to-face with their prospective client and provides the employer with a health fair that is well organized, educational, and fun for the employees.
