McClinton and Cephas to host Health and Wellness Summer Jam on Aug. 12

PHILADELPHIA, July 28 – State Reps. Joanna McClinton, D-Phila./Delaware, and Morgan Cephas, D-Phila., are proud to announce the 60th Street Health and Wellness Community Summer Jam.

The event will be held from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 12 at 60th Street between Arch and Chestnut streets. It will feature health screenings and resources, children’s activities – including a moon bounce, main stage entertainment, food, refreshments and fun for the whole family.

“We are excited to host this event, because it lets us interact with neighbors who want to ask questions and provide feedback on a wide range of matters,” McClinton said. “People from every neighborhood and community in the district are invited to come together to enjoy food, games, entertainment, win prizes, and learn about important community health partners in Philly.”

Cephas said, “Often, people aren’t aware of everything that is available to them through the state. My job as a state representative is to help get that information to them, and this event is a great way for me to reach a lot of my constituents while we all enjoy ourselves.”

Legislative staff will be available to answer any state-related concerns constituents may have, including on a variety of state programs such as the Children’s Health Insurance Program and the Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program. Local and state agencies will also be available onsite.
