Health Fair at Eureka Gardens in Jacksonville, Florida
In late spring, Eureka Gardens in Jacksonville, Florida, hosted an amazing health fair for the children on the property.
Nursing students from the University of Florida organized the event, partnering with dental students from Florida State College at Jacksonville, Grace Lutheran School, Party City, St. Vincent’s Mobile Unit, Walgreens, and Winn Dixie.
Children were shown basic dental hygiene techniques and they were given interactive models of teeth so they could practice what they learned.
The children also learned how to use a potato as deodorant and how to make toothpaste out of baking soda, peroxide, and warm water.
We are so thankful for all of our partners for taking the time and effort to teach the children at Eureka Gardens!
