LA CROSSE, Wis. – The special presentation “Alcohol Poisoning: A Mother’s Story” by Luanne Wielichowski, the mother of a Viterbo student who drowned in an alcohol related accident, will open the Viterbo University Community Health Fair from noon–1 p.m. Tuesday, April 3 in the School of Nursing Collins Auditorium, room 196.

The Community Health Fair is free and open to the public. People who plan to attend the opening presentation are asked to register because space is limited and lunch is provided. Call 608-796-3825 to register.

Following Wielichowski’s presentation, the Community Health Fair will be held from 2–6 p.m. in the Amie L. Mathy Center for Recreation and Education.

The theme of this year’s health fair is “At the Heart of Health and Safety.” More than 40 local organizations are scheduled to attend, including Franciscan Skemp Healthcare, Gundersen Lutheran, Coulee Council on Addictions, and Consumer Credit Counseling Services of La Crosse. Participants will have the opportunity to get a massage, enjoy a healthy snack, donate blood, undergo numerous health screenings, obtain important health and safety information, or participate in any of the many other available activities.
