GRUNDY CENTER - UnityPoint Clinic and Grundy County Memorial Hospital are hosting a community-wide Family Fun Wellness Fair that includes fun, games and refreshments, as well as important information about health screenings, wellness, and prevention. Clinic providers, including new physician Dr. Eric Neverman, Becky Frisch PA-C, and Mike Knutsen PA-C, will be on hand to greet members of the public.

The free event is Tuesday, September 20, 4:30 7:00 p.m. in the Grundy County Memorial Hospital south parking lot. The Lifeguard helicopter will be available for tours, as will the Grundy Center ambulance. Children's activities include an inflatable jump house, face painting, games, and balloon animals. Refreshments and prize drawings will be available.

"The Wellness Fair is a good time for people to meet with our newest provider, who specializes in pediatrics and adult internal medicine," says Kayla Stirling, UnityPoint Clinic administrator. "Dr. Neverman is eager to get to know the community as he begins his medical practice." In addition, Stirling says members of the public can take advantage of free blood pressure checks, receive up-to-date immunization information, and get to know the services available through the clinic, Grundy County Memorial Hospital, and Grundy County Public Health.

"We invite everyone to stop by the Wellness Fair to learn what's available locally to help them stay healthy, including the hospital's new Diabetes Prevention Program, our medication education program for kids called 'Katy's Kids', and the new Walk With A Doc program," says Keely Harken, GCMH Community Outreach Manager.

Grundy County Memorial Hospital is located at 201 East J Avenue in Grundy Center. In the event of rain, the event will be moved to the hospital lobby. More information on the Family Fun Wellness Fair may be found at
