Chandler residents invited to Mayor Tibshraeny’s Health Connect Expo

Mayor Jay Tibshraeny invites Chandler residents to his Health Connect Expo on Saturday, March 19, at the Tumbleweed Recreation Center (TRC), 745 E. Germann Road. The event is free, open to the public and runs from 9 a.m. to noon.

Activities offered at the Health Connect Expo include:

  • Fitness and cooking demonstrations
  • Child fingerprinting by Chandler Police
  • Giveaways and more
For the second year in a row, Mobile On-site Mammography (MOM) will offer breast cancer screenings during the Expo. The breast cancer screenings take about 15 minutes, and will be conducted by a licensed and registered mammographer in the mobile office in the TRC parking lot. 

Medicare patients are welcome, and most major insurance carriers are accepted. Staff will verify insurance benefits and advise if there are any charges the patient will be responsible for. The Desert Cancer Foundation of Arizona will cover the cost for non-insured or under-insured patients. Patients under the age of 30 must provide a doctor’s referral. Interested residents must bring their insurance card, doctor’s name and address and location of prior mammogram films. Appointments are highly encouraged and now being accepted at 480-967-3767 or 1-800-285-0272.

This is part of the Mayor’s ongoing Health Connect initiative to promote overall well-being for Chandler residents in a three-pronged approach, including physical, mental and financial health.  Additionally, the Mayor emphasizes good mental health through a number of suggestions to deal with stress via his Twitter account, @jaytibshraeny.
