Triton logoKosciusko Community Hospital¬†provided a mini health fair for the students at Triton Elementary School on Monday, October 30th.¬† It was like a healthy “Trick-or-Treat”.

Hospital staff provided pencils, baggies, and mini first-aid kits for the students. Additionally, they brought frozen fruit for the students that was handed to them at the nutrition booth.
