(New Philadelphia, Ohio) – The Tuscarawas County General Health District is gearing up for the 100-year celebration open house.
What do the mighty redwoods of California have in common with our very own Tuscarawas County Health Department? Both have stood the test of time and weathered many storms and have come out stronger and better than ever!
The Tuscarawas County Health Department has been serving Tuscarawas County for 100 years and to show our appreciation for the community, we are hosting an Open House on May 22nd from 4p-6p. Come one! Come all! Grand prize drawings for Vera Bradley backpacks filled with gardening supplies and a bicycle and helmet.
Guests are invited to tour the building and visit each department. Along the way, guests can participate in Project Dawn training, blood pressure checks, BMI checks, and immunizations (pre-registration is required by calling 330-343-5555).
Parents/caregivers can pick up a free cleaning kit as they learn how to protect their children from lead poisoning and see a Certified Child Passenger Safety Technician to have their child’s car seat checked. Children can take a ride through Safety Town and be fitted for a free bicycle helmet, as well as plant seeds to take home and watch them grow.
Here are the sneak peeks of what guests can enjoy from each of the health department’s
Environmental Health – Lead poisoning prevention with FREE cleaning kits which include a bucket, Libman Twist mop, cleaning solution, cleaning wipes, and reusable cleaning cloths. Health Education – Safety Town: Bicycle safety with FREE bicycle helmets (while supplies last) and car seat checks. WIC – Seed planting: Children can plant seeds and take them home to watch them grow. Medical Records – We are Blooming!
Clinic – Grow Up with Us: Stages of growing and how the TCHD can help during each stage.
Immunizations will be available (pre-registration is required by calling 330-343-5555) or you can register during the Open House to receive immunizations on another day. Blood pressure and BMI checks will also be available.
