The annual fair sponsored by the Healthy Communities Coalition drew hundreds of area families in with free screenings, food, cooking classes, yoga, informational booths and more. The teddy bear clinic was designed to help children know what to expect at a hospital by walking their new teddy bear through admission, diagnosis, treatment and discharge.
