JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – The sixth annual health expo kicked off the weekend long event on Friday at the Arkansas State University Convocation Center.

People came to learn more about medical conditions they currently had, how they can eat better, and what practices are available in Jonesboro.

A robotic surgery tool called the Davinci was displayed among other exhibitions to show people about new, uprising technology in surgery.

Dr. David Lewis is from the Otolaryngology and Facial Surgery Center and is one of the sponsors of the Expo.

He believes that everyone should attend to benefit themselves.

"Every age group has different kinds of health care needs, and they need to be here over the weekend so they can get those issues addressed, ask questions and get more information", says Dr. Lewis.

On Saturday, the Expo plans to have health screenings from 8am to 3pm at the Convocation Center.

Physician-led panel discussions cover many medical issues including, senior health care, cancer awareness, and other major issues.

Free physical exams for student athletes from the area were offered at the event.
