Marion County Health Department puts on successful annual health fair

Hillsboro Community Hospital offered a Teddy Bear clinic, where kiddies become familiar with experiences that happen on a doctor visit, like vaccinations, and ear exams – The Baxa sisters loved applying many band-aids to this bear at Saturday’s Health Fair.


K-State’s exhibit was a blender attached to a bike – kids pedal and the blender whips up the ingredients. There were quite a few “smoothie mustaches” among the younger guests at the Health Fair on Saturday.
Mark Rooker, CEO of Hillsboro Community Hospital, Krista Schneider, Director of Marion Co. Health Department, and Jeremy Ensey, CEO St. Luke Hospital and Living Center, did the final drawing where Trevor Kruse of Marion an Apple Series 8 watch.

Lots of information and many prizes were given out as well.
