PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 12 – State Rep. Joanna McClinton, D-Phila./Delaware, welcomed more than 300 constituents to her Healthy from Head to Toe Senior Appreciation Fair.     

The event featured health screenings by Sayre Health Center and Health Partners Plans, fitness demonstrations from BeautiFitStrong and performances by The Guiding Lights Quintet and Jakeya Sanders.
