Muñoz holds event to encourage women’s health and fitness

munoz fair 092019MCKINLEY PARK – Assistant Majority Leader Tony Muñoz (D-Chicago) participated in National Women’s Health and Fitness Day with a community event centered on helping women stay healthy.

The event was hosted at the National Latino Education Institute and included a number of valuable services to the local community.

“Women are a driving force in our communities and it’s important that they have access to resources they need to care for their health,” Muñoz said. “I’m glad we were able to bring together a wide array of vendors and workshops to support women’s health.”

Participants were able to get vision screenings, blood sugar tests, blood pressure tests, manicures and makeovers. The agenda also included yoga, stress management, breast cancer awareness, first aid, domestic violence resources, nutrition tips, Zumba and more.

About 200 women attended the event and were entered for a chance to win raffle prizes, including tickets to Brookfield Zoo and gift cards. The Illinois Department of Public Health also administered 100 flu shots.
