VITERBO UNIVERSITY COMMUNITY HEALTH FAIR APRIL 8
LA CROSSE, Wis. – “Be Earth Wise–Simply” is the theme of this year’s Viterbo University Community Health Fair to be held Thursday, April 8 from noon–5 p.m. in the Amie L. Mathy Center for Recreation and Education.
The event, which is free and open to the public, will feature numerous health screenings, a DUI simulator and other activities, and educational displays. Participants will have the opportunity to have their body fat measured, have their blood pressure or hearing checked, learn about advanced directives, discover the benefits of natural organic foods, undergo a chiropractic screening, and sample some healthy snacks. The BloodCenter of Wisconsin will host a blood drive at the event, and guests are welcome to bring their bikes for a safety check.
“The Community Health Fair is a great way to learn about health and environmental resources that are close to home,” said Sue Danielson, Viterbo director of health services and chair the event.
More than 50 local organizations are scheduled to participate, including Franciscan Skemp Healthcare and Gundersen Lutheran. The event is hosted by Viterbo University and co-sponsored by State Farm Insurance Mike Noelke Agency, Magic 105, and The Big Event Company.
“A health fair is a great way to promote and offer education to employees, students, and the community about wellness and preventative medicine,” Danielson said. “Health screenings allow participants to actively monitor their health status, and it’s free.”
