THE BRONX - Lincoln Hospital held a wellness fair Thursday to spread information about family health.

The hospital has held the event for the past 14 years.

Experts set up booths for topics ranging from health insurance to portion control for eating right.

The hospital also encouraged visitors to take fitness tests and have their blood pressure and body mass indexes taken. Such information is recorded as a baseline for people thinking about making changes for diet and exercise.

The event also included beach-body sculpting workshops for teens.

Hospital staff say that their doors are always open for help and health advice, even for people who missed the event.
