Mayor Tom Barrett and Commissioner of Health Bevan K. Baker invite the community to get to know the City of Milwaukee Health Department at open house events to be held Friday, September 9, at the City of Milwaukee Southside Health Center (1639 S. 23rd St.) and Friday, September 16, at the City of Milwaukee Northwest Health Center (7630 W. Mill Rd.). Both events run from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
“Our City of Milwaukee health center locations provide a wealth of services to our community,” said Mayor Tom Barrett. “I invite our health center neighbors and residents citywide to join us for a day of free health screenings, information and fun.”
Each event will offer free services including diabetes and cholesterol screening, blood pressure checks, HIV testing, and mammograms*, as well as immunizations for those without insurance or children on BadgerCare. Partner agencies will also be providing additional health services and information for all ages along with children’s activities and games.
“Each year our health centers welcome thousands of individuals for health services and programs,” said Commissioner of Health Bevan K. Baker. “During our Open House events we welcome all who want to learn about City of Milwaukee Health Department services and work.”Did you like this story? Subscribe to NNS today.
