The Inshape Indiana Black and Minority Health Fair is next week. It's part of Indiana Black Expo's Summer Celebration, which FOX59 is a media partner of. In Wednesday's Angela Answers, Nyla Fleming, a Nurse Practitioner with Community Health Network, spoke about taking a look at minority health concerns.

The core goal of the Indiana Black & Minority Health Fair is to increase minority awareness of chronic diseases, and how to prevent them. Increasing minority awareness of diseases, such as diabetes, heart disease, stroke, hypertension, and cancer is not just the goal of the Office of Minority Health or of the Health Fair.
