CROSSE, Wis. – Get a massage, donate blood, enjoy a healthy snack,

resources in the La Crosse area at the annual Viterbo University Community
Health Fair from 2–6 p.m. Tuesday, April 8 in the Amie L. Mathy Center for

The theme of this year’s event is
“Your Life, Your Health.” The event is free and open to the public, and more
than 50 local organizations are scheduled to attend. People attending the fair
will be entertained by the Apple Annies Choir, who will perform at 4:30 p.m.
Door prizes will also be awarded.

“The annual health fair is a great
way to promote the many preventative, wellness, and safety options in our
community,” said Sue Danielson, director of Viterbo’s health services and chair
of the event. “We have a number of new organizations participating this year,
and I’m confident everyone attending will find the event very informative.”

The health fair will feature a

allergies and treatment options, receive a spinal, blood pressure, blood sugar,
or skin cancer screening, learn about organ donation, receive information on
weight loss and weight management, healthy food and nutrition, and view
