The Boys & Girls Clubs of Northeastern Pennsylvania recently held the Back-to-School Health Fair sponsored by the Blue Cross of Northeastern Pennsylvania. Club members from the central unit, Park It sites and Luzerne County Club extensions received free back-to-school health screenings administered by area health care professionals. Pictured is Quinn Williams, Club member (l); getting her height and weight measured by Lynn McAndrew, Moses Taylor (r).
Healthcare professionals and organizations from all over Lackawanna County volunteered their time to educate and safeguard Club members in preparation for the back-to-school season. Volunteers from Moses Taylor also checked blood pressure and body temperature. Pictured are (l-r) Michele Johnston, Moses Taylor; Emily Haines, club member; and Theresa Baker, Moses Taylor.
