CHICAGO – As an effort to bring free resources to community members, state Rep. Theresa Mah, D-Chicago, is hosting a Community Health Fair this Saturday, March 24th, at Arturo Velasquez Institute, located at 2800 S Western Ave. in Chicago.

“With the full-on attack on healthcare we are seeing in Washington DC, it is important that people in our state have access to health services right in our communities,” said Mah. “It not only helps our neighbors be in the best health they can, but is a good way to bring people together and feel an overall sense of community.”

Rep. Mah is hosting her 2nd annual Community Health Fair on Saturday, March 24th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. where healthcare professionals will be on site performing free health screenings to community members. Some of the services that will available are free screenings of glucose, blood pressure, cholesterol, vision, dental, and more. Free haircuts and manicures will also be offered at the health fair.

“I want to bring these services right to people, instead of them having to make costly doctor’s appointments to just screen for potential issues,” said Mah. “When people have an understanding of their overall health condition, they can start to make the necessary changes to ensure that they can increase their quality of life.”

Mah represents the 2nd District, which includes the Chicago neighborhoods of McKinley Park, Pilsen, Chinatown, Bridgeport, Brighton Park and Back of the Yards. For more information, please contact Rep. Mah’s district office at 872-281-5775.
