Thousands Get Health Advice at INshape Indiana Black and Minority Health Fair

For the past 21 years, thousands of people have received healthcare advice at the INshape Indiana Black and Minority Health Fair.  

Many African Americans don't know where to go for healthcare advice, or are too embarrassed to ask for help. Many more are without health insurance.  

This year, diabetes was the focus of the health fair.  Free screenings for high blood pressure, glucose, cholesterol and sickle cell disease were provided.  

To see how Black doctors are providing health screenings for Black men who don't want to go to the doctor, see:  Black Men's Health:  Too Embarrased to Talk about It?  See also:  More Black Success Volume 4.
