2015 Men's Health Week

 

Each year, Near North Health Service Corporation joins the National Men's Health effort to promote awareness, prevention, education and family. This year we provided health screenings, free haircuts, cooking demonstrations, interactive workshops, and refreshments to hundreds of men. The week opened with the kick-off featuring speakers Cook County Commissioner Jesus "Chuy" Garcia, Senator Mark Kirk's Director of Veteran Affairs Craig Genteman and his staff member Josh, along with radio personality Joe Soto, serving as Master of Ceremonies.
