Dawkins sponsoring Women’s Health Fair on Sept. 9

PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 15 – State Rep. Jason Dawkins, D-Phila., will sponsor a Women’s Health Fair from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 9 at the Northeast Frankford Boys and Girls Club, 1709 Kinsey St.

“My women’s health fair is a perfect opportunity for women of the 179th Legislative District to get routine checkups that can help them stay healthy and reach their wellness goals. Attendees will receive free screenings – and get lots of health questions answered -- by making just one visit,” Dawkins said. “I think it’s very important for the health and safety of my constituents who may not have access to health care that my office provides this type of event.”

The health fair will feature services from a wide range of health-related fields, including:

  • Cancer care
  • Health insurance
  • Behavioral health
  • Medical equipment
  • Women’s-issues-focused counseling
  • Opioid addiction help
  • Sexual violence prevention
  • Fitness

Dawkins and his staff will provide assistance for constituents applying for the Children’s Health Insurance Program, Medicaid and the Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program. Local and state organizations will also be available on site.

For more information about the health fair, please call Dawkins’ office at (215)744-7901 or visit www.pahouse.com/Dawkins.
