[March 17, 2011]  The 25th annual Children's Health Fair will be presented at the Lincoln Park District's SportsCenter on April 1 from 8:45 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. Fifth-graders from Logan County schools will attend the health fair as a field trip. Home-schooled fifth-graders are invited as well.

The students will attend the health fair as an opportunity for them to play an active role in learning about health issues and healthy living. Information will be available on topics such as cancer, tobacco use, exercise, nutrition, dental health, disabilities, drug and alcohol abuse, asthma, general safety, and other topics.

While the Children's Health Fair is open to fifth-grade students only, the annual Community Health Fair is open to the public the next day. Adults and children are welcome to attend the free Community Health Fair, which will take place at the Lincoln Park District's Indoor SportsCenter from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on April 2. More than 60 organizations will have displays or offer health screenings, as well as accepting various recyclable items. A nominal fee may be assessed for certain screenings. There is no admission charge to the health fair and all are welcome to attend. (See related article.)

For more information, contact Colleen Feece at the Logan County Department of Public Health, 217-735-2317, or Marcia Greenslate at the Lincoln Park District, 217-732-8770.
