Health Fair 2011

Saturday, hundreds took advantage of the 40-plus educational and health screening booths on display at this year's Sheridan County Health Fair.

Held at Sheridan College's Bruce Hoffman Golden Dome, Health Fair Coordinator Cecile Pattison explains what it was all about.

Over 2300 people took advantage of blood draw held earlier this fall and could bring their results to the Health Fair to be interpreted by health care professionals.

Sheridan County Community Health was there with a new booth focusing on radon, a cancer causing radioactive gas.

Amy Wyatt, a nurse from Community Health, helped man the booth which was aimed at raising awareness about radon, the second leading cause of lung cancer. She explains what radon is.

The only way to know if your home has high levels of radon is to test for it. Radon test kits are available from Community Health for $10. The Health Fair is sponsored by Sheridan Memorial Hospital.
