Rabb to host Health Fair and Mammogram Event

PHILADELPHIA, July 11 – In his continued effort to promote health and well-being of constituents in the 200th Legislative District, state Rep. Chris Rabb will host a Summer Health Fair and Mammogram event.

It will take place from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Thursday, July 19 at his satellite office located at Wadsworth Library, 1500 Wadsworth Ave., 19150.

Various community groups will be present to provide blood pressure screenings, healthy food samples and information about choosing and living a healthy lifestyle.

Fox Chase Cancer Center also will be in attendance with its mammography van. Women may receive a mammogram if they are 40 or older, have not had a mammogram in the last 12 months and if they get a prescription from their physician to give to the technician.

“Whether it’s a family member, friend or colleague, many of us know someone who has battled breast cancer,” Rabb said. “Early detection is so important, so I urge all eligible women to make an appointment to get a lifesaving screening.”

Women interested in scheduling a screening should contact Debra Resnick at (215) 214-1682. Space is limited.
