SHS hosts 'Love Your Heart' health fair

Thursday, March 1, 2018
Spencer High School hosted the "Love Your Heart" health fair Wednesday afternoon. The fair was co-sponsored by Avera Medical Group Spencer and Spencer Hospital and featured six educational stations featuring information ranging from tips on healthy eating to a blood pressure check. Students visited the fair early in the afternoon, and from 4-6 p.m. the fair was open to the general public.
