“Since 2005, the women leaders of the Junior League of Greater Covington have hosted Girls Health Day to empower girls to ‘Be Healthy. Be Happy. Be You!’” said Dr. Amy Puerto, President of the Junior League of Greater Covington. “As we continue to promote, grow, and prioritize this internationally recognized event, the Junior League is thrilled to be partnering with Lakeview Hospital for a 10th year.

New this year, the Junior League has expanded the ages of the attendees from 8-17 years old and will host national motivational speaker from Louisiana, Emma Benoit, to share her inspiring, personal mental health journey. We look forward to all girls and their guardians to join us for this fun, interactive, and inclusive day of health and wellness.”

This year’s fair aims to educate girls on topics related to health and social issues, with relevant talks and demonstrations on internet safety, hazards of vaping and tobacco use, safe dating, social media education, mental illness, puberty and changes to expect, sexual health, and healthy eating, along with ongoing fitness demonstrations. The theme “Be Healthy. Be Happy. Be You.” inspires girls to promote healthy, positive behaviors.

Participants can take advantage of free health screenings including: vision and scoliosis screenings, BMI measurements, and dental hygiene. The girls can also be a “Doctor for the Day” by experiencing a simulated surgery activity using the Da Vinci Robot. Door prizes and giveaways will be available to all attendees.
