KANSAS CITY, Missouri — Because of poor weather conditions, last week’s Eighth Annual Public Health & Safety Fair, hosted by Sen. Shalonn “Kiki” Curls, D-Kansas City, was postponed.

The event has been rescheduled for 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. this Saturday, June 14, at the Samuel U. Rodgers Health Center, 825 Euclid Ave. The health fair provides citizens the tools they need to help fight and prevent chronic disease while supporting a healthy lifestyle.

Services and events scheduled for this year’s fair include health screenings, car and booster seats for those who meet federal poverty income level requirements, bicycle helmets and bicycle giveaways, a mini-football camp and much more. The current forecast shows sunny skies for this weekend.

In a press release, Curls said, while there was a speed bump with the weather last weekend, she hopes this year’s event is as successful as past years. The fair is free to the public.

“These Public Health and Safety Fairs help build community partnerships and provide our citizens with access to beneficial screenings, such as eye exams and blood pressure, dental, diabetes, mammograms and body mass index (BMI) screenings,” Curls said. “Numerous organizations and businesses have teamed up with officials to support this year’s Public Health and Safety Fair. It’s through these collaborative efforts and events that we can make a difference in disparities found throughout our communities.”
