NMHS and Downtown Tupelo Main Street Association Partner to Improve Community Health & Wellness at Farmers’ Depot
TUPELO, Mississippi – The Farmers’ Depot is back this year with a fresh new take. This year, North Mississippi Health Services will be the presenting sponsor as part of their mission to continuously improving the health of the people of our region.
For the first time ever, NMHS will present a number of programs at 9 a.m. Saturdays throughout the summer. Some of these programs include; health screenings by North Mississippi Medical Clinics, Women’s Breast Health by the Breast Care Center, Touch a Truck by North Mississippi Ground Ambulance, Preserving the Harvest by Sarah Hammock of Population Health and so much more.
“We are excited to take part in this mission-aligned community effort,” Shane Spees, NMHS president and chief executive officer, said. “What better way to provide the best patient- and family-centered care than to start that at home by preparing healthy fruits and vegetables for you and your loved ones. We are excited to join the Downtown Tupelo Main Street Association on this venture.”
NMHS serves 24 counties in north Mississippi and northwest Alabama from headquarters in Tupelo.
“Downtown Tupelo Main Street Association is delighted that North Mississippi Health Services has partnered with our Farmers’ Depot this year,” Lucia Randle, Downtown Tupelo Main Street Association executive director, said. “The addition of NMHS programming will enhance our guests’ experience with multidimensional aspects of wellness and healthy living. We appreciate their continued commitment to the health and well-being of our community.”
The Tupelo Farmers’ Depot starts Saturday, May 7, and runs through Sept. 24 at 415 S. Spring St. The Market opens at 6 a.m., NMHS presenters begin at 9 a.m. and the Market closes at noon. For more information, visit www.tupelomainstreet.com/farmers-depot.
