From the Bates County Memorial Hospital

About 130 children toured the BCMH Ambulance or visited the hospital's booth at the Bates County Health Center Children's Health Fair on Tuesday, August 1st. 

Pictured, Paramedic Brad Pennington looks in on visitors as they receive free jump ropes after their tour from EMT Jay Patel. 

Indoors, Respiratory Therapist Marci Denning educated visiting children about asthma using a game with straws and cotton balls, demonstrating the difference in the ease of air flow. 

Thanks to the Health Center and many other participating organizations, Bates County kids enjoyed free screenings, giveaways, food, and an increased awareness of living a healthy life.
