Children's Health Fair

The Children’s Health Fair is a long-standing educational event that was designed for third graders to learn how to live healthy lifestyles. This learning event is now available to the Cumberland and Perry County school districts. This year’s event will be sponsored by the UPMC Pinnacle Foundation.

Due to COVID-19 and social distancing restrictions, the 2021 Children's Health Fair has been adapted as a virtual event. This program teaches age appropriate lessons based on the theme "Healthy is Happy" to third graders. The video sessions give children the chance to see, hear and learn information on building self-esteem, promoting positive relationships, prompting children to consider health career options and inspire them to choose healthy lifestyles.

Throughout the Children’s Health Fair, students will view learning stations virtually by accessing a series of modules online every 2 weeks. Students are encouraged to watch the seven video series, each video is approximately 15 minutes long.
