Over 300 Enjoy Veterans Memorial Hospital “Family Wellness Fair”

The Veterans Memorial Hospital “Family Wellness Fair” welcomed a huge crowd of over 300 visitors this year during their Hospital Week celebration.  Visitors toured the Medical Clinic, Hospital and Gundersen Clinic in their route to the over 40 booths and educational displays, demonstrations, activities, and give-aways provided by the numerous agencies who service Allamakee and northern Clayton counties as well as from nearly 20 hospital departments.

Entertainment for the evening included balloon artist Mike Chapman, face painting by Claire Butchkoski, Paramedic, a fly-in with helicopter tours by Gundersen Air, a Waukon Fire Department fire truck and hospital ambulance all on site.

Gundersen Clinic welcomed guests with a huge, inflated walk-through colon showing what a heathy colon and a cancerous colon can look like, and encouraging regular colonoscopies with Dr. Yee.

This family event is held each Spring on the hospital campus and is free and open to all members of the area communities.
