Baptist Memorial Hospital-North Mississippi in Oxford hosted its annual Back-to-School Children’s Health Fair on Aug. 23 at the Oxford Conference Center and children and parents learned about healthy choices and their health status through screenings.
This year’s theme was ‘Under the Sea’, with 50 vendors, giveaways, activities, and refreshments,” said Jennifer Eastland, Community Relations Coordinator at Baptist-North Mississippi.
Health screenings included developmental, dental and hearing. Children learned about fire and forest fire safety, crime and drug prevention, bike safety and be able to tour an ambulance, fire truck and the Hospital Wing helicopter.
Vendors offered door prizes, arts and crafts projects, and safety, health and nutritional information. Special guests included the Ole Miss Rebel Bear, Stan the Bear, Smokey the Bear, and a magician performing magic shows. New to this year’s event was parenting and child literacy workshops sponsored by the LOU Excel by 5 Coalition.
