TRADITIONAL AND HOLISTIC WELLNESS TO BE FEATURED AT WELLNESS IN THE MEADOW EVENT
Local organizations are bringing together both traditional and holistic health to create a wellness event
in Uniontown, PA called Wellness in the Meadow. The free event will be held on September 10 from
11am-4pm at Meadow Valley Venue located at 39 McCormick Avenue in Uniontown. The agenda
includes yoga and fitness, blood pressure, pulse oxygen, and heart rate checks, health organization
exhibitors, handmade vendors, and speakers on healthy living.

Uniontown area similar to popular events held in other local cities. Leann Beatty, owner of OmBody
Massage and Wellness in Uniontown has had a vision for this event and found a unique venue at
Meadow Valley, “I wanted to bring the community together to promote health and wellness in a way

Through a partnership with the Fayette Living Well Coalition and the Fayette Chamber of Commerce,
this inaugural event now has almost 40 exhibitors/vendors in addition to some excellent opportunities
to learn and move while attending.

wonderful opportunity for us to share all the different ways we are available to the community for this
In addition to workshops and vendors, the event will also have food vendors, yoga classes, a dedicated
