Library Holds Health Fair

About 35 people attended Fulton County Library’s health fair on Saturday and participated in informative sessions.

Misty Hershey, director of public relations for Fulton County Medical Center, spoke about the many services available at the Medical Center. Marty Hann spoke about the HealthCare4AllPA initiative; Dr. Roger Horst, veterinarian at the Mercersburg Veterinary Clinic, spoke about pet nutrition; Cathy Snyder, Fulton County Medical Center dietician and nutritionist, spoke about the USDA’s My- Plate guidleines; and holistic nutritionist and personal trainer Julia Richards held a Zumba class.

Free healthy snack packs provided by McConnellsburg Giant Store were handed out along with informational pamphlets dealing with health and wellness. The fair was held to highlight the library’s recent LSTA (Library Services and Technology Act) Grant, federal funds administered by Commonwealth Libraries, which is helping the library update its collection of consumer health and wellness materials.
