“One of our goals at the INShape Indiana Black and Minority Health Fair is to help Hoosiers make healthy decisions to have longer and better lives,” he said. “People should take advantage of the valuable screenings and information offered so they can better understand their risk factors and how they can take action to prevent chronic diseases.”
