Three Rivers Health Fair 2017


Today the St. Joseph County Literacy Council took part in the 6th annual Three Rivers Health Fair, held at the Three Rivers Health Trac.  We were one of many different agencies who participated.  The Literacy Council does this annually since literacy is an important ingredient of a healthy life.  Many studies have shown that illiterate people live shorter less healthy lives due to various reasons including; an inability to read about healthy practices, a lack of understanding of medical practices and doctors's instructions, lower income leading to unhealthy eating habits and various other factors.  We made numerous contacts with other agencies in hope of future collaborations and we spoke to a number of people regarding possible future tutoring.
