HEALTHY LIVING FORUM
Getting back to the basics is what the Healthy Living Forum is all about. Genesa Living Foundation has organized a full interactive forum covering both days of the Memorial Day Weekend Health Expo event.
In addition to exhibits by local health care providers and vendors who are part of the Sierra Health & Recreation Expo, the Healthy Living Forum will also feature professionals who will speak on the many aspects of health from nutrition and fitness to mental health, pain relief and stress reduction.
One of the highlights this year will be California Assemblyman Brian Dahle sharing about his life’s work as a farmer. Dahle represents the state’s first district, which stretches along the northeastern edge of California, from the Oregon border to the Tahoe-Truckee region.
Dahle is also a third-generation farmer, a business owner, and a former four-term Lassen County Supervisor.
