Dozens of people lined up for the opening of the Southcoast Health Expo presented by WSAR Radio and Southcoast Hospitals Group at White's Restaurant on Sunday, March 7, 2010. Over thirty vendors were on hand to provide information, free samples and prizes to those who attended the free event. Free blood and blood pressure checks were offered by vendors and  material was available about stroke recognition. As in past years, prizes were raffled off by WSAR Radio staff and the entire event was broadcast live by the radio station staff who used the event  as an opportunity to do live interviews with many representatives of the participating organizations.
