ALTON, Ill. – To give residents in the Metro East access to a wide variety of healthcare services, state Rep. Monica Bristow, D-Alton, and state Rep. Katie Stuart, D-Edwardsville, are hosting a Health and Wellness Fair on Friday, March 1 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Hatheway Cultural Center on the Lewis and Clark Community College Campus, located at 5800 Godfrey Rd. in Godfrey.

“During my time as state Representative, access to healthcare has been an important issue in my district, so I have hosted events like Mobile Health Units and an Opioid Summit. However, I feel it is important that I give my constituents access to all different kinds of healthcare organizations and amenities,” said Bristow. “I want to thank all of the organizations who agreed to participate in this Health and Wellness Fair which will connect residents of the Metro East with a diverse range of useful healthcare services.”

Services offered at the Health and Wellness Fair will be nutrition, daily living, fall prevention, body composition and exercise prescription, oral cancer screening and personal oral hygiene instruction, materials on safe disposal of medication & de-activation bags, counseling services, cancer services, breast and lung screening information, home care and hospice, pediatrics and primary care and more.

“Different age groups have different healthcare and medical needs, and Rep. Bristow and I wanted to ensure that we provided adequate information to meet those varied needs,” said Stuart. “I encourage everyone to attend this Fair, bring their friends and loved ones, and to bring information to those who are unable to attend about the different services that organizations in our area can provide.

The Health and Wellness Fair is free and open to the public, and no RSVP is required. For more information, please contact Rep. Bristow’s constituent services office at 618-465-5900, or email at
