More than 20 community exhibitors will also participate, and an outside display will feature emergency vehicles such as police cars, an ambulance and the Terre Haute SWAT team’s Humvee.

Other health fair participants include the Area Health Education Center, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, CARE Ambulance, Chances and Services for Youth, Council on Domestic Abuse, Indiana University School of Dentistry, March of Dimes, Red Cross, Terre Haute Fire and Police departments, Terre Haute and Vigo County Parks and Recreation departments, Vigo County Health Department and Vigo County Public Library.
