A Healthy Start to the School Year


Horizon Health in Paris, IL hosted their fourth annual “Back to School Bang” this Saturday.

Games, interactive booths, and over ten healthcare centered organizations filled the Paris Clinic.

Families from all over Edgar County stopped by for free dental and vision exams for their children.

“I had a guy waiting at 8:30 to get the free dental exam for his son,” said Office Assistant to the Clinic Director Jessica Cummins.

The games and supplies are great for the children, but the best part about the event for parents is the easy access to those exams.

“Sometime’s it’s hard to get into your doctors with parents working and that kind of thing. So we wanted to do it on a Saturday so people can just come in,” said Cummins.

The clinic also offered school and sports physical exams, along with immunizations.

Parents had to bring insurance cards, and of course immunization records for their students.
