Health and Safety Fair from 10 AM -- 1 PM
In order to provide educational information and promote health and safety to the local communities it serves, IU Health Arnett will host its third annual Health & Safety Fair on May 9, 2015. Over 800 people attend the Health & Safety Fair which focuses on providing education to children and their families about their health and well-being. Dozens of community organizations will provide educational booths including a smoke trailer to learn how to escape from a smoky house, blood pressure and cholesterol screenings, cancer screenings and hands-on CPR and AED training for families. Community partners also provide information about services for patients with cancer, calling 911 and a system that helps locate lost children with disabilities. Door prizes will be raffled off all day long.
In addition to the Health and Safety Fair, IU Health Arnett will hold their second-annual community 5K walk/run. Proceeds from this event will support the IU Health Arnett Foundation in executing its mission to benefit, perform and carry out the charitable, educational, scientific and other exempt purposes of IU Health Arnett. The race course will take runners around the hospital and surrounding countryside.
