MONT ALTO, Pa.-- Penn State Mont Alto gave area children a healthy dose of education and exercise Saturday during its second annual Pediatric Health Fair.
Hosted by the nursing, physical therapy (PT), occupational therapy (OT) and forestry departments of the university, the fair used games, mazes and more to show children and parents unique ways to live healthy and active lives.
Dr. Linda Carl, nursing instructor and faculty sponsor for the event, said everyone learns at the fair.
"Nursing, OT, PT and forestry had new ways to learn about pediatric health care and disease prevention," she said. "The children and their parents were able to learn how to live healthy lives through interactive games."
For 6-year-old Cheyenne Smith, learning to use crutches, playing with the parachute and touring the Life Lion helicopter was a "great time."
