Utica, N.Y. - MVHS hosted its first ever System-Wide Health Fair on Saturday inside Utica's Union Station.

Patty Charvat, MVHS Senior Vice President of Strategy and Marketing, says this is a brand new initiative, "And we are doing it in conjunction with the Farmer's Market because we firmly believe that we have a very important role to play in the health and wellness of our community, so we’re not just here for when you’re sick, we’re here to help keep your well, and we're launching a whole new community initiative."

Those who attended learned about healthy living and took part in free health activities such as health screenings, a scavenger hunt and the opportunity to test drive the da Vinci® Xi™ surgical robot system.
