    • Back To School Fair

    • A successful Back To School Health Fair was held Saturday at the Mexico United Methodist Church. Sponsors for the event were HealthCare USA, Community Health Ministries Team and Audrain County Health Department. Approximately 315-330 attended the event which was up from last year. There were more than 100 hair cuts provided throughout the day. Children received dental assessments, hearing and vision screenings, blood sugar tests and hair cuts and more. They also received school supplies and a backpack at the end of visiting all the stations. Top photo, parents and children entering the fair and visiting the ACHD station.
