Danville Wellness Fair Hopes to Improve Local Health

Danville, VA -- A recent study listed Danville as one of the least healthy places in Virginia. But some folks are doing their best to make that statistic better. According to a study by the University of Wisconsin, Danville ranks 125th out of 133 locations.

But a community wellness fair in Danville is trying to change that. Friday was the third year they have done this fair and it was free to the public. 13 organizations brought booths to Danville Regional Medical Center.

The booths provide information for people looking to improve their health. There was also some info on how to keep your finances healthy.

"We want the community to have a full healthy perspective whether it is finances or their personal health," said Donna Allen, coordinator for wellness fair.

Martinsville and Henry County ranked lower than Danville on the list.
