What makes you go “ewww”?

July 16, 2019

Although sometimes our bodies disgust us, they certainly are amazing! Visit the Goshen Health tent at the Elkhart County 4-H Fair and check out the family-friendly innovation stations centered around our bodies and the things that make us go “ewww!” In addition, free screenings will be offered for blood pressure, skin cancer, non-fasting cholesterol and more. On the last day of the fair, visit our tent for a free bag of garden produce. The Goshen Health tent is air-conditioned and located between the fair office and the Young McDonald's Farm, near the main gate.
