  Portage Health Staff Accountant Laurie Dube welcomes people to the 2010 Health and Safety Fair. More than 500 people attended the fair in 2010, and organizers hope to see that number grow higher for 2011 as dozens of activities will be hosted on Portage Health’s campus including free health screenings, a car seat clinic and a drawing to win an iPad 2.    

HANCOCK – The anticipation is growing and so is the list of activities available at the third annual Health and Safety Fair, which will be hosted by Portage Health at the main campus in Hancock on June 4.

“This event grew in popularity last year and this year we’ve made the list of activities even bigger,” said Angela Luskin, community health coordinator. “We have a great bunch of free health screenings, the popular car seat clinic, a bike and kayak safety demonstration, and much more.”
