Wellington Chamber Announces Health Festival Chairmen

The Wellington Chamber of Commerce has announced that Dr. Randall Laurich of the Wellness Experience of Wellington and Johnny Meier of My Community Pharmacy will serve as chairmen of the 2014 Wellington Health & Wellness Festival.

The event will be held Saturday, March 8 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Wellington Amphitheater.

The goal of this event, presented by the chamber’s Medical & Wellness Committee, is to create awareness of the many dimensions of wellness through experiential booth exhibits. A variety of specialties will be showcased, including chiropractic spinal screenings, medical screenings, cutting-edge fitness trends, integrative and holistic medicine, aromatherapy, pet therapy, massages and heart-healthy food samples.

Laurich has been practicing chiropractic wellness care since 1998, when he graduated from the Sherman College of Straight Chiropractic. His special focus and passion is helping people change the patterns and habits that are preventing the body from healing itself.

Laurich’s broad knowledge in diverse fields including nutrition and exercise therapy, as well as his experience in personal growth and motivational leadership, allows him to partner with each patient to help them achieve their desired health goals. Laurich is the incoming president of the Wellington Chamber of Commerce.

Johnny Meier and his wife, Meroe, founded My Community Pharmacy in 2008 with the dream of providing extraordinary patient care in their new hometown. They have succeeded in growing the pharmacy, and in 2010, the business relocated from Kobosko’s Crossing to the Whole Foods plaza to accommodate the increasing volume of patients.

Meier has strived to be an active member of the Wellington community. He has been a supporter of local charities such as Hugs & Kisses and the Muscular Dystrophy Association. He was invited to serve as the event chair of the American Cancer Society’s Wellington Relay for Life in 2013, during which he helped raise approximately $40,000. He will once again lead the Wellington walk again in 2014.

Meier is a member of the American Legion and served active duty in the U.S. Air Force. He is an incoming board member and an active member of the Wellington Chamber of Commerce.

March 3 is the registration deadline for the Wellington Health & Wellness Festival. For more info., call (561) 792-6525.
