CHICAGO, Ill. – Over 130 area residents attended a Health Fair this past weekend, hosted by state Rep. Theresa Mah, D-Chicago, all free of charge.

“Healthy communities begin with healthy individuals,” said Mah. “Providing access to these screenings will hopefully lay the groundwork to a healthy future for those in my district.”

Mah hosted the Health Fair on Saturday, March 25th, and partnered with several clinics from the local area. Attendees were provided with free blood pressure, cholesterol, and HIV/hepatitis C screenings. Adults were offered dental exams, while children were offered fluoride treatments and sealants. Women were given vouchers which can be exchanged for a free mammogram sometime in the future. The health of the families living in her district is of great importance to Rep. Mah.

Mah is serving her first term in the Illinois General Assembly as State Representative of the 2nd District, which includes the Chicago neighborhoods of Pilsen, Chinatown, Bridgeport, McKinley Park, Brighton Park and Back of the Yards.


Mah speaks with constituents at the Health Fair she hosted this past weekend.
