Health Secretary Dr. Calvin B. Johnson today invited all Pennsylvanians to visit the Department of Health's "Body Shop" exhibit at the Farm Show for free health screenings, fun games and activities, and important health information.

Department staff will provide information on a variety of health topics including the risks of tobacco use, eliminating lead hazards in homes, preventing osteoporosis, cancer and injuries, and dialing 9-1-1 for health emergencies. Influenza vaccinations will also be offered at various times throughout the week.
