The Wichita Falls-Wichita County Public Health District is hosting a health fair next week on April 4 from 3 to 6 p.m. This will be the health district’s first fair since 2019 and will be held at its main campus located at 1700 Third Street in Wichita Falls, Texas. The event is planned to coincide with National Public Health Week, which runs from April 1-7.

City Public Information Officer Chris Horgen mentioned that over 40 community partners will be present at the event to support VFVCPHD’s motto: “A Healthy Community is a Strong Community.” Attendees can expect more than 30 kid-friendly booths at the show, with additional activities and partners still being added as the event approaches. Participants will have the opportunity to play games, participate in activities, have their blood pressure checked, participate in a scavenger hunt, donate blood, try out a car crash simulator, win door prizes and more.

In addition to the health fair activities, Wichita Falls Animal Services will offer free pet adoptions and free microchipping at its 1207 Hatton Road location during National Public Health Week. This collaborative effort aims to promote health and wellness within the community by providing resources for responsible pet ownership and ensuring that pets are properly identified with microchips.
