The Student Support Center at Bowling Green McCoy, in collaboration with Bowling Green Chacon and Fern Bacon Middle School, sponsored a full-day health fair for students, their families and the community on October 26.

The event, held on the shared grassy area and blacktop between all three campuses, provided resources for preventative health care, mental health services, education nutrition and healthy eating habits.

More than 150 attendees were treated to healthy food samples, recipe books, blood pressure checks and cholesterol and vision screenings. Major sponsors included McDonald’s, HealthNet, SMUD, Sacramento County, CA Northstate University College of Pharmacy and many others.
