Annual fair offers lifestyle tips for Healy, Dighton students

Tips on better physical and mental health were offered to Healy and Dighton students during the annual youth health fair held at the Healy School.

About 85 students in grades K-12 visited 15 booths sponsored by local law enforcement, health professionals, Extension and students from Fort Hays State University.
