DPW workers to get healthy food, exercise, medical tips today

Faced with the extensive tasks of restoring The City’s battered streets and ramshackle sidewalks, employees from the Department of Public Works need to be as fit as can be, so the department’s third-annual Health Fair should be much appreciated.

DPW’s 1,200 workers will get medical screenings, nutrition advice, and exercise tips during the fair, which lasts from 9 a.m. to noon today at the department’s headquarters on Cesar Chavez Street.

The San Francisco Produce Market will give demonstrations on how to prepare healthy meals, the California Pacific Medical Center will perform medical screenings, and Crunch Gym will dispense workout advice. The fair also coincides with the onset of the Swine Flu season, so workers will receive instruction on how to halt the spread of the affliction.
