There will be dedicated booths offering information and demonstrations on current health and medical practices, sustainable energy alternatives, organic foods, homeopathic treatments, state-of-the-art exercise equipment, and other vendors providing tools for healthy living.   The Rickie Report shares the details and some sneak peeks.
