The NBC4 20th Anniversary Health & Fitness Expo will connect participants with leading health experts and NBC4 personalities during the two-day can’t-miss event.
This year, we will present a variety of health forums for people to learn from, ranging from how bullying affects children to how to combat allergies during the upcoming pollen season.
And this year, you can watch these forums LIVE on NBCWashington all weekend long! Join us for live streams starting at 10:30 a.m. and ending at 4 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday.
