Bob Mancuso, Jr., Director of the Omaha Health Expo, said, The Omaha
Health Expo is a unique community event that represents a
multi-dimensional, complimentary view of health and wellness.  The expo
will have seminars on various topics both days.  As an interactive
event, each attendee will have the opportunity to speak with vendors
experts in their fields at the Omaha Civic Auditorium Mancuso Convention
Center and Exhibition Hall - Free both days!

This is really an exciting opportunity for the Omaha area to host this
health and wellness event, said Michael Braunstein, publisher of the
Heartland Healing Magazine.

The Expo will also feature the Omaha Health Expo Walk and Bike Ride
events in the mornings on April 24-25, as the kick off events for the
springtime running, walking, and biking season.  The walk event  the
Omaha Walk MS -  is on the Saturday, April 24 and proceeds go to the MS
Society.  Contact the MS Society for more details!  The Omaha Health
Expo Bike Ride is on Sunday, April 25.  Both events start and finish at
the Omaha Civic Auditorium.  The bike ride event is open to clubs
(companies can form their own clubs) and individuals.  There is also a
high school club challenge!  There are awards for the club levels based
on participation (largest number of bike riders).  Bike riders can still
sign up.  Proceeds from the bike ride will go to Eastern Nebraska Trails
Network (ENTN) and go toward trail development in eastern Nebraska and
greater Omaha.

Mancuso said the Omaha Health Expo is about education.  There have been
many studies that relate physical fitness, positive attitude, and
overall health to a positive impact on the bottom line.  Associates can
have lower levels of stress and improve their well-being and
self-esteem.  For the company, that can equate to enhanced productivity
and lower health care costs.

a tipping point in our health status.  Smart companies view human
capital as their most important asset.  The more we put into developing
and keeping our employees well, the more we become economically
competitive worldwide.  Furthermore, its the right thing to do Value
wellness throughout the lifespan for our employees, dependents, family
members, and retirees.  The Omaha Health, Wellness, & Fitness Expo is
not just an added benefit.  Its the way smart companies create good
culture and do good business.

Sandy Aquila from the Omaha Healing Arts Center said, The expo is
creating an opportunity for knowledgeable people in the field of
Mind-Body-Spirit to come together.  My vision for this event is that it
touches and opens the heart-mind of all who attend and proves to be
another doorway into deeper understanding of our highest potential.
