Health Fair has something for everyone

April 11, 2011

From general information to blood pressure checks, the 2011 Health Fair had something for everyone Saturday.

“We are out here because of the interaction with people,” Sheila Crockett, area manager of Encompass Home Health, said. “There are lots of people who don't know about the help that is out there and this is one way we can get it out to them.”

Encompass was one of the many businesses and organizations manning booths at the health fair, held at Dorothy Garret Coliseum. Certain businesses, such as Compass Hospice, have been attending the health fair for more than 10 years and other businesses were introducing new programs to the area.

“We are just kicking off our program, Safe Sitter,” Yvette Woody, risk manager/infection preventionist nurse said. “I had seen it in other communities and thought it was a good fit for ours.”

Safe Sitter is a program designed to teach adolescents how to properly handle babysitting responsibilities. The program focuses not only on life-saving skills, but nurturing behavior as well.
