To the Editor:
The Teen Advocates for Health Awareness (TAFHA) and their advisors sponsored a third grade health fair, May 6. We had great community involvement, for which we would like to take this opportunity to recognize and thank each one.
Presenters were: Susie Frew, RN, health educator from the Carroll County Health Department, Connie Leggett, RN, representing Aultman Hospital, Kim Galbraith, RDH and Carolyn Yeager of the Carrollton Family Dental Practice, Colleen Joseph, paramedic and Doug Taylor, paramedic with the EMT service in Carrollton, Rhonda Marshall, Family Life Science teacher from Carrollton High School and John Cox and Ken Pasuik, elementary Physical Education teachers for the Carrollton Schools.
All the children were given a bag of items that related to health and fitness. Those who donated items from various organizations and businesses, we would also like to recognize and thank. They are: Jobes Pharmacy, Ashton’s Ben Franklin, Rite Aid, Thorne’s IGA, Carroll Electric, Huntington Bank, Key Bank, EMT (Emergency Medical Transport of Carrollton), Mercy Medical Care Center of Carroll County, Aultman Hospital, Carrollton Family Dental Practice, Carroll County Health Department, and the American Cancer Society.
Thank you! Without your contributions and support this health fair would not be possible!
