On Friday, May 26, the freshmen class at Independence High School participated in the 2nd Annual Health Fair. In the morning, students participated in listening to four different guest speaker sessions. Topics included stroke, lung and skin cancer, healthy eating, and drug awareness. Students also visited an adult-led health fair where they learned about driving distracted, drunk driving, blood pressure, organ donation, and the local strong style fitness gym. In the afternoon, students advocated for their health topic by teaching other Independence High School students what they learned through a presentation board and an educational activity. In all, more than 100 students and adults participated in this event.
