Vázquez to sponsor free community health and wellness fair July 14

PHILADELPHIA, June 27 – State Rep. Emilio Vázquez, D-Phila., invites residents to his free community health and wellness fair from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, July 14 at Fairhill Park, located at the corner of West Lehigh Avenue and North Fourth Street.

Vázquez said while the event aims to promote healthy lifestyles, its main focus is financial health and wellness.

“From obtaining savings and checking accounts to setting up a plan for retirement, there are a lot of aspects to consider when it comes to good financial health,” Vázquez said. “It will connect people with services and support to help them get their financial house in order now and for their future.”

The event will feature more than 60 exhibitors offering information on finances, health and wellness, and local and state services; activities for children, food and refreshments, health screenings, exercise demonstrations, and nutritional resources.

Vázquez said his staff also will be on site to answer questions constituents may have about state programs and services. Assistance will be available in English and Spanish.

No RSVP is required. For more information, contact Vázquez’s office at (215) 425-5708.
