Free Sports Physicals at Youth Health Fair

In an effort to promote the importance of establishing good health habits early in life, Pocahontas Memorial Hospital will hold its Annual Youth Health Fair Friday, July 10, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. in front of the hospital. Many of the healthy behaviors we have as adults are habits that we first learned as children; for example, brushing our teeth or washing our hands before meals.
The Youth Health Fair is a day full of fun with games, prizes, face painting, free food, clowns and a helicopter landing. In addition, special exhibits will be set up to encourage youth to lead a healthy lifestyle. Stations will focus on things like sun safety, drug abuse prevention and healthy eating. Various county organizations will be on hand with information about their services, including the Family Resource Network, Marlinton Rescue Squad, Pocahontas County Health Department, Right from the Start and the Pocahontas Prevention Coalition.
A highlight of the day will be sports physicals for the youth – at no cost – available through the Rural Health Clinic. Even though the physicals are offered at no cost to the student, all applicable insurances will be billed; so please remember your insurance card. No appointment is necessary.
Every child who attends will be registered for door prizes that include outdoor games, gift certificates to local businesses, bicycles and protective gear.
If you have any questions, please contact Cheryl Cain or Susan Wilkins at 304-799-7400.
