Seeds of Healthy Living Planted at Farmers’ Gathering
Posted on: 12/16/2019

About 1,500 farmers and their families, representing every county in Illinois, gathered in Chicago earlier this month to represent the state’s agriculture industry at the Illinois Farm Bureau Annual Meeting.

Attendees had the opportunity to participate in a health fair, which featured speakers covering topics such as healthy eating, mental health, general safety and opioids. The fair also offered free health screenings for skin cancer, osteoporosis, blood glucose and blood pressure.
