Host of The Dr. Oz Show, Dr. Mehmet Oz, is the featured guest at the WPBF 25 Health and Wellness Festival on April 2 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at The Gardens Mall in Palm Beach Gardens. Television actress Suzanne Somers is the event’s special guest.

It’s free to attend the annual festival, aimed at educating the community about health and wellness.

Dr. Oz will lead a panel discussion with local medical professionals and focus on the top health issues affecting South Floridians—from the Zika virus and skin cancer, to diabetes and heart disease.

Suzanne Somers, singer, author, lecturer, health advocate and entrepreneur, will share her advice for better aging and healthier eating. She’ll share secrets for looking young, as well as, on a more serious note, talk about her cancer scare, alternative therapies and simple everyday tips for a healthier lifestyle.

“Imagine a new way to age,” Somers says in an event press release.

Dr. Oz’s wife Lisa Oz, bestselling author and The Good Life Magazine editor-at-large, will be on hand to share recipes, present a live cooking demonstration and offer health eating advice from the Oz family home and her new cookbook “The Oz Family Kitchen.”

And from our community, dozens of local health and wellness experts will be stationed throughout the mall to answer questions and promote products, procedures and services.

WPBF 25 fans can meet and take pictures with their favorite news anchors, and kids can have fun at the events kids’ zone.
