Illinois State Senate District 1 issued the following announcement on Sept. 16.

Assistant Majority Leader Tony Muñoz (D-Chicago) participated in National Women’s Health and Fitness Day with a community event centered on helping women stay healthy.

The event was hosted at the National Latino Education Institute and included a number of valuable services to the local community.

“Women are a driving force in our communities and it’s important that they have access to resources they need to care for their health,” Muñoz said. “I’m glad we were able to bring together a wide array of vendors and workshops to support women’s health.”

Participants were able to get vision screenings, blood sugar tests, blood pressure tests, manicures and makeovers. The agenda also included yoga, stress management, breast cancer awareness, first aid, domestic violence resources, nutrition tips, Zumba and more.

About 200 women attended the event and were entered for a chance to win raffle prizes, including tickets to Brookfield Zoo and gift cards. The Chicago Department of Public Health also administered 100 flu shots.

NLEI students in the Bilingual Medical Assistant and the Customer Service for Healthcare programs served as volunteers at the event.

Muñoz will host a Clean Energy Dialogue on Monday, Sept. 23 at NLEI at 2011 W. Pershing, Chicago from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
