PHOENIX -- Good health care is not cheap. And if you aren't feeling well, sometimes a free health fair can provide an option to get checked out.

3TV's Heidi Goitia took us to one of those health fairs that runs until 5;00 p.m. Tuesday.

Chicanos por la Causa, Inc. (CPLC), along with JP Griffin Group, VSP Vision Care, Dental Care and BlueCross BlueShield of Arizona, is hosting the community health fair.

Attendees of all ages can obtain comprehensive eye exams and, if needed, glasses. The can also get dental exams, health screenings, immunizations and advice on health care issues, all at no cost.

"There's need for a lot of families, not just in this area,"says Sandra Gonzales of Chicanos Por La Causa. "They're either un-insured, or under-insured," she says.

The event is open to the public. Information will also be offered on behavioral health, domestic violence shelters and reduced-fee mammograms and exams.
