“We've got [local chiropractor], Dr. [Mark] McCracken, doing adjustments; we have CPR demonstrations, and many members of the Chamber of Commerce here,” said Vera Wolfe, director of the school. “All of these local businesses have been good enough to come and sit out here in this heat to participate in this health fair.”
“It's great for everyone,” said Wolfe. “Vendors get exposure and get involved in a deeper level with the community, and visitors to the fair will learn so much more about how to meet their health needs or learn about this area of education that they weren't really aware of before.”
“Also,” she said, “vendors get to converse with other vendors in this relaxed environment- they get to learn new things about what's out there in the health world on a local level.”
Industries with representatives in attendance included local banks, Blood Assurance (blood donation was available on site), nursing home facilities, home health care facilities, home health care agencies, chiropractors, local doctor offices, staffing agencies, and dept. of labor and rehabilitation services.
