The annual women’s health fair welcomed hundreds of women on May, 29th, 2024 to the Cicero Community Center. The wellness event began at 1 in the afternoon providing a variety of different services to the community. “We are really grateful to have everybody that showed up here today. We are offering Thai Chi, sound therapy, B12 shots and of course health screenings,” said Director of Public Health Operations Vanessa Parrish. “We have haircuts, nail trimmings so it’s a nice way for women to take the time to pamper themselves a little bit.” Women were able to sign up for raffles and receive information from a variety of different community organizations. Women were able to receive medical services inside the gym and participate in the different classes if they wished. “Our clinic is offering blood pressures screenings, height and weight, other vital signs, blood work which would include lipids and diabetes screeners,” said Medical Director Dr. Katherine Skurski. “I think this is a really great opportunity to bring to light the importance of having all of the women and residents in our community come in and really start to take care of themselves.” The Cicero Health Department is open Monday through Thursday from 8:00am-8:00pm. If you would like to make an appointment please call 708-656-3600 ext. 147.
