 Kids of all ages can walk on the wild side of wellness during the 23rd annual Wild About Wellness Children’s Health Fair on Saturday, August 11, from 9 a.m. until 12 noon at Four States Entertainment Center, Texarkana (AR).

CHRISTUS St. Michael Health System, in conjunction with TownSquare Media, is bringing this FREE event for families in the Four States area. The fun event will include a variety of different health screenings, immunizations and access to a variety of medical professionals.

“These health screenings are a great chance for parents and families to get some preventive and wellness care that is always needed,” said Sue Johnson, Director of Advocacy and Community Planning, CHRISTUS St. Michael Health System. “The screenings include vision, weight and height, dental, asthma and more. Families seeking immunizations for their children need to bring their current shot records. It is a wonderful opportunity for families and is also a fantastic opportunity for CHRISTUS St. Michael to promote health, wellness, and safety and set a tone for maintaining good health in these kids’ now and in the future.”

But don’t worry – it’s not all medicine! Other activities will include bounce houses, games, tricycle races, a diaper derby, finger casting, petting zoo and bubble gum bubble-blowing contest.

“There are some really fun things we have planned for this year with our partners at TownSquare,” said Johnson. “The diaper derby is always a blast, and this year’s event will also include a bicycle safety challenge. Plus, kids who participate in the bike safety activity will be fitted for a free bicycle helmet, while supplies last.”

The 23rd annual Wild About Wellness Children’s Health Fair is presented by CHRISTUS St. Michael Health System and TownSquare Media, as well as Superior Health Plan, Pediatric Dentistry of Arkansas and Dr. Mitchell Glass, Kellie Ashbrook and Derrick McGary State Farm, Texarkana Parent, Smiles of Arkanasa, Kicker 102.5, Power 95.9, Eagle 106.3, Magic 93.3 and KOSY.
