The University of Virginia Children's Hospital hosted their annual Boys & Girls Club health fair Friday.
The Youth Health Fair is an opportunity for children to learn about making smart choices in an effort to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
There were pediatricians on site to give free sports physicals and to answer any questions kids had about general health.
“There are many reasons and many benefits for the kids, but first of all it’s to spread awareness of the obesity epidemic, and how it can aid it in clearing these kids to those sports via the sports physicals,” says Alex Janovski with UVa. Children’s Hospital. “It’s also a way to embrace the community resources.”
The annual fair is always during the summer time as a way to reach more kids, and to spread awareness about healthy lifestyles.
