Naperville: August 24, 2018: The Islamic Center of Naperville and Community United Methodist Church will jointly host a Free Health Fair on September 8th, 2018 (Saturday) from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM at 2844 W OGDEN AVE, Naperville, IL 60540.
The objective of this initiative is to serve humanity, bridge the gap with bonds of love, care, and compassion, and offer a safer and healthier community. Individuals 16 years of age or older are welcome at the Free Health Fair regardless of faith, religion, or race.
Physicians, dentists, and nursing students at the Free Health Fair will be screening for blood pressure, blood sugar, oral cancer, and other ailments. They will also provide counseling on health-related issues, including weight management and nutrition. Additional arrangements have also been made for vision tests, mini massages, flu shots, etc.
“Despite being in a country that has so much to offer, there are people within our community and surrounding neighborhoods who are in dire need of adequate and appropriate health care. They are deprived of this basic necessity due to multiple reasons, unable to have access to affordable care being the most common,” stated Dr. Atif Fakhruddin of ICN Free Clinic.
In addition, free health classes by eminent physicians, dentists, dietitians, and physical therapists will be held on topics such as Advances in Orthopedic Education, Healthy Eating, Living with High Blood Pressure, General Fitness, Preventing Heart Disease, Balance & Fall Prevention, Dental Hygiene, Managing Diabetes with Healthy Diet, and Life Affected by Diabetes.
“We recognize the same health needs and are happy to work with ICN on the Free Health Fair,” said Pat Shanower, speaking for Community United Methodist Church. “There will be something for everyone that day, whether it is a flu shot, a screening, or learning how best to prevent serious diseases. We want everyone to feel welcome.”
