The West Potomac Academy Health Classes hosted the second day of their annual health care fair for the children in the Head Start Program at the high school on Feb. 3.

Academy students in dental careers, medical assisting, occupational-physical therapy and pharmacy tech introduced the children to a doctor’s check-up, a visit to the dentist, the need to take medicine when recommended by a physician and a lesson in physical exercises to keep the body active and well.
