Green Living magazine is excited to host the Health, Wellness & Water Expo in partnership with Discover Avondale on Thursday, January 26. This exclusive event will provide event goers with the opportunity to hear valuable information on achieving optimal health and wellness, in addition to discussions about local agriculture and the importance that water plays in our lives.
Jennifer Davidson, Water Resources Manager for the City of Avondale, has over 20 years of experience in water management in the Valley and knows the importance of its protection. “Water is such an integral part of our lives, and I am excited to be a part of the Green Living Health, Wellness & Water Expo in Avondale to share some water knowledge with our community.”
From 8-11 a.m., attendees will have the opportunity to hear from professionals across three interactive panels. The first panel will focus on health and wellness, providing expert advice from a naturopath, mental health professional, an M.D. specializing in fitness education, and a homeopathic M.D., as well. These individuals will discuss the importance of holistic health ranging from your mind to your gut, and how healthy food consumption and exercise play important roles in all of your body’s functions.
The second panel, beginning at 9:15 a.m., will address water levels across the state with a focus on the Hassayampa River and the West Valley. Representatives from SRP and APS will discuss their territories, as well.
The third panel, beginning at 10:20 a.m., will feature local farmers, ranchers and agricultural experts, including Patrick Bray, executive vice president of the Arizona Farm and Ranch Group and Goodyear City Council member, who will weigh in on water conservation strategies in agriculture.
Between panels, event attendees can visit multiple booths featuring health and wellness products along with various treatments and services, in addition to speaking with industry experts. From integrative medicine physicians and naturopaths, to nutritionists, farmers and more, these experts will provide advice to attendees on how to make the healthiest choices for their lifestyle.
Attendees may come and go as they please, and can expect to be treated to a catered lunch before having the opportunity to join breakout sessions about the health benefits of fermented foods, how to sprout your own food and hydration optimization. There will also be a raffle prize drawing to benefit the YWCA.
The event takes place at the Avondale Visitors and Conference Center, the perfect locale for this event. The modern layout, constructed just this past year, reflects the city’s commitment to the community and upholds the values of the expo.
Attendance is free and open to the public and business area community. Those wishing to participate in the expo directly can help by volunteering or collecting donations for the YWCA. For more information and to RSVP, visit
