Free health screenings and yoga, zumba and cooking demonstrations will be offered at “A Day Just for You,” women’s health fair from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, April 21 at Resurrection Medical Center, 7435 W. Talcott Ave., Chicago.
Doctors and dieticians will be on hand to answer questions, also at no charge. The health fair will feature hearing, skin, breast, blood pressure and hand screenings as well as body fat analysis. Participants will be able to pick up mail-in colorectal cancer screening kits.
A yoga demonstration will be held at 9:15 a.m., a zumba demonstration at 10:15 a.m. and a healthy cooking demonstration at 11:15 a.m. Zumba is a fitness program that combines Latin dance with aerobics.
“This event is specifically for women,” said Mariana Burgos, supervisor of Health Management and the Res Fitness Center at Resurrection Medical Center. “Women are so busy caring for others, they sometimes neglect their own health. We want to give them the latest information on how to stay healthy. It will be a fun day, and everyone can enjoy learning and getting pampered as well.”
The fair will also feature bra fittings, chair massages, personal training sessions and a book trade. There will be a continental breakfast, raffle prizes, and gift bags.
Resurrection Medical Center is on Talcott Avenue just west of Harlem Avenue and north of the Kennedy Expressway. Parking is free. Use parking lot B. Handicap accessible parking is available near entrance A.
