Community and Wellness Fairs

Sponsoring a community and wellness fair will enable the PTA to share practical and valuable information.

Fairs can:

  • Promote good family and personal practices;
  • Provide screening services for your school and community (and follow-up, when screenings indicate further testing is required);
  • Utilize community professionals to identify potential health-related problems that, if properly treated, can be eliminated or prevented from becoming serious;
  • Promote safety in the home, school, and community;
  • Provide the community with a variety of educational information and resources;
  • Emphasize the practice of good habits; and
  • Connect with organizations and agencies in the community.

Materials and planning guides may be found in “Health Fairs at Your Fingertips … a Practical Guide to a Successful Health Fair,” www.capta.org, under Programs, Health, events.
