The event also will offer free cholesterol, glucose and blood pressure screenings.

While the public is invited to the free performance, women between the ages of 25 and 45 years old, who have not yet gone through menopause, and who do not have a history of cancer or other major health conditions, are encouraged to come and learn about the study being conducted by the Center for Research on Minority Health at M. D. Anderson.
