On April 23rd, Myrtue Medical Center’s Public Health Department hosted KidsFest 2022 for the children and families of Shelby County—and surrounding areas. 396 children and 280 adults registered for this event, received health and safety education, and participated in fun activities throughout the morning. This event is possible only with support from the community. Donations, volunteer time, community partner participation are all major contributing factors into the success of KidsFest. Our heartfelt thank you goes out to all who contributed to Kidsfest 2022!
