DETROIT — Muslim, Jewish and Chaldean health care professionals are teaming up to offer free medical screenings for Detroit residents.

The Interfaith Health Fair runs from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday at the Muslim Center in Detroit. The goal is to provide screenings for the working poor who don’t qualify for government-provided health care or other discounted programs.

Organizers say patient referrals and urgent treatment will be provided as needed. The clinic also will feature education stations and social workers will be available to help with referrals to direct service agencies.

The fair marks the second health care collaboration of the Council of Islamic Organizations of Michigan and the Jewish Community Relations Council.

Detroit area Muslims also have joined Jews on Christmas for Mitzvah Day, their largest annual day of volunteering.
