As a part of the annual flu vaccine clinic, the Owen J. Roberts Community Connections Leadership Cohort has planned an amazing Wellness Fair. Visit a variety of health and wellness booths to learn new approaches to physical fitness, wellness, and nutrition. See what wonderful opportunities our community has to offer! A list of participants may be found at the bottom of this article.
School season is prime time for classes, homework, sports… and unfortunately, the flu. With the flu virus most active from October to May, getting vaccinated is the #1 way to prevent the flu and the fever, sore throat, body aches, and even serious health complications it can cause. We are partnering with the Chester County Health Department to offer a flu shot clinic to community members.
When: October 21, 2019, 3:00pm-6:30pm
Where: Middle School, Cafeteria and Lobby
