Annual Grundy County Wellness Fair set for January 10

Reinbeck Courier

Today's health guidelines often mention the advice to 'Know Your Numbers.' The annual Grundy County Wellness Fair sponsored by the county Wellness Coalition and the Grundy County Farm Bureau will give community members a chance to learn their key numbers for good health, in addition to a variety of health and safety information.

The 2015 Wellness Fair will take place at Grundy County Memorial Hospital on Saturday, January 10, beginning at 7:00 a.m. until 10:00 a.m. In addition to low-cost blood screenings, there will be free blood pressure checks, free hearing screening, and exhibits and demonstrations from area organizations that focus on health and wellness.

A free healthy breakfast will be available in the hospital's East J Caf.

"We're offering a convenient way for local residents to start the New Year with information about their health," says Crystal Petersen, Wellness Coalition member. "Access to routine health screenings can provide the information necessary for people to focus on lifestyle changes that help improve health, or confirm that personal efforts to improve health are indeed working," says Petersen.

For more information on the Grundy County Wellness Fair, contact Petersen at Grundy County Memorial Hospital, 319-824-5421 or Andrew Peters, director of the Grundy Family YMCA, 319-825-6210. More details are available at
