Senator Curls to Host 9th Annual
Public Health and Safety Fair

Jefferson City — State Sen. Shalonn “Kiki” Curls, D-Kansas City, today (8-11) released a statement about the 9th Annual Public Health and Safety Fair she will be hosting on Saturday, August 15, 2015, at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City.

“I’m very pleased to once again be hosting the Annual Public Health and Safety Fair in Kansas City. Living a healthy lifestyle is the single greatest thing we can do for ourselves and for our families, which is why we have chosen ‘Promoting Healthy Lifestyles’ as the theme of this year’s event.

Prevention is key when it comes to maintaining our health. Participants of all ages will be able to get diabetes and blood pressure screenings, body mass index (BMI) readings, dental checks, car/booster seat installation and bicycle safety tips.

This year we are partnering with the Black Health Care Coalition, Kansas City Missouri Police Department, Truman Medical Center and the Kansas City Royals to make this one of Kansas City’s premier free public service events in the city. Our community needs to know what services are available to enhance their quality of life, and I encourage area businesses and organizations to set up a booth at this noteworthy event.”
