The Jackson Medical Mall Foundation hosted its annual Health & Wellness Expo Thursday.  

Dozens of people took advantage of the free services during the event at the Jackson Medical Mall.

Health professionals provided free glucose, blood pressure and cholesterol checks, as well as, rapid HIV testing.

Organizers say the event helps promote healthy lifestyles for citizens of the Jackson metropolitan area.

"We always want to start the year off in a health conscience manner," said Fallon Brewster, Jackson Medical Mall Foundation. "We think it's important to bring the community out and try to make them aware of their own health so they can improve the quality of their life."
