About 560 Floyd Dryden Middle School students participated in the Alaska Regional Health Fair on April 18 at the middle school.
The fair was coordinated by the Young Parent and Healthy Teen Center, a program of Catholic Community Services. Presenters from a wide variety of backgrounds attended the event, including representatives from AWARE, Zach Gordon Youth Center, NCADD, Pavitt Health & Fitness, the Pep Grant, University of Alaska Fairbanks Cooperative Extension Service, Lemon Creek Correctional Center, Public Health and SAIL/ORCA.
In addition to learning about elements of physical, emotional and societal health, students all had height and weight measurements and vision tests. During the fair, they had the opportunity to win exciting door prizes from generous donors including the Nugget Alaskan Outfitters, Hearthside Books, Wal-Mart and Foggy Mountain Shop.
