ASHBURN - Students at Turner County middle and high schools got to learn a little more about their community Thursday. The Turner Family Connection Expo brought in health professionals to educate teens about the importance of healthy diet and a positive body image.

But it was not just a health fair, they also learned about summer camp opportunities and building a better relationship with law enforcement.

"It covers anything that effects our teenagers, tobacco prevention, big brothers and big sisters, Ruth's Cottage, anything of interest to teenagers," Sue Mastrario with the Family Connection said. 

This was Turner County's second teen expo, they decided to make it an annual event after one student reported last year's helped prevent a suicide.
