Reinbeck Courier

GRUNDY CENTER Today's health guidelines often mention the advice to 'Know Your Numbers'. The annual Grundy County Wellness Fair sponsored by the Grundy Center Wellness Committee will give community members a chance to learn their ley numbers for good health, in addition to a variety of health and safety information. The morning also offers fun, family physical activity opportunities including the Pink Nose, Warm Toes 5k and Walk With a Doc events.

The 2017 Wellness Fair will take place at Grundy County Memorial Hospital on Saturday, January 7, 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 provided by the Grundy County Farm Bureau 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 Committee 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 Crystal Petersen at Grundy County Memorial Hospital, 319-824-4154 or Andrew Peters, director of the Grundy Family YMCA at 319-825-6210. More details are available at
