Beefing up Penn State Health at Farm Show

This week at the 2020 Pennsylvania Farm Show you can get a milkshake, a free flu shot and – for the first time – information that could improve your health.

Penn State Health will have a bigger presence than in previous years at the state’s annual agricultural fair Saturday, Jan. 4, to Saturday, Jan. 11. The event takes place at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex and Expo Center in Harrisburg, Pa. Here’s what’s coming:

  • Penn State Health nurses are offering flu shots at the Farm Show. Seventy volunteer nurses from Penn State Health will inoculate Farm Show-goers from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily in the Main Hall. The annual community service is provided in partnership with Highmark and the Pennsylvania Department of Health.
  • New this year, Penn State Health providers will be on-site talking with attendees about health care on the Penn State Health “front porch” next to the food court.
  • Can’t make the Farm Show? Check in at CBS 21’s nightly newscast to hear from our providers.
  • Education from providers will reach beyond the walls of the Farm Show Complex as we will be featured on CBS 21’s Facebook page at 6:30 p.m. during the following six Facebook Live events:
    • Monday, Jan. 6: Telemedicine/Penn State Health OnDemand
    • Tuesday, Jan. 7: Medical Group/Preventive Care
    • Wednesday, Jan. 8: Cancer Institute
