State Senator Mattie Hunter (D-Chicago), the Human Resources Development Institute and State Representative Sonya Harper (D-Chicago) are providing free health screenings at their 13th annual Health Fun & Fitness Fair.
The event will be located at the Illinois Institute of Technology on 33rd and State streets.

The festivities will include performances, raffles, prizes, food and refreshments.
“As Chicagoans, we should remember to take care of our loved ones by doing everything we can to make our communities stronger and healthier. Getting active, having fun and remaining safe are all possible when a neighborhood becomes a family,” said Hunter.
