State Senators Dan McConchie (R-Hawthorn Woods) and Donald DeWitte (R-St. Charles) are hosting a free Senior Health Fair on Wednesday, September 7 from 10:00 AM until noon at:
East Dundee Township Park District
665 Barrington Avenue
“I look forward to hosting such an important and valuable event once again for seniors and their families bringing healthcare resources and support to those who need it. We are bringing together over 35 vendors this year providing health screenings and support from various State agencies. This will be the most diverse health fair yet.”
Flu shots and free health screenings will be available, and those who attend can learn about alternative ways to lead a happier and healthier lifestyle. A variety of local vendors will also be on hand to discuss programs and services that benefit seniors. Admission is free and refreshments will be served.
“We expect this event to be well-attended, as we will have several not-for-profit organizations, businesses and medical professionals on hand who focus on improving the lives of senior citizens,” said Sen. DeWitte. “This is a great opportunity for seniors, their families, and their caregivers to learn about services that are available in this region.”
