JANESVILLE - Blackhawk Technical College will host its 10th annual Health Fair from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday, March 20 at the central campus, 6004 S. County G.

"This free event is a wonderful way to provide area residents with access to life-saving information and screenings, in an effort to help them make better health decisions," said Colleen Koerth, employment specialist and member of the Health and Wellness Committee.
