WAUSAU (WAOW) -- Area residents attended a health fair at Cedar Creek Mall. Over the weekend, people took advantage of the free health screening. The eight-step process evaluated individuals from head to toe, measuring everything from body fat to pulse rate.

It's purpose was to make people aware of their health issues so, they can act now to avoid future illnesses. "We are trying to focus on preventative where people can think ahead and make decisions that will help them lead healthier lives," says health educator, Joseph Bergeon. 

 Each person had a consultation at the end of the screening. Educators told individuals what needed improvement and advice on how to do it. The event also held lectures on current health-related legislation.
