CASEYVILLE, Ill. – To promote healthy living and increase awareness for public health, state Rep. Katie Stuart, D-Edwardsville, will be collaborating with local service providers to offer a number of free health services to community members. The event will be Oct. 16 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Caseyville Public Library, located at 419 S. 2nd Street.
“As we head into cooler weather, it is important to keep tabs on our health and wellness,” Stuart said. “This event will provide a multitude of health screenings and consultations that will give attendees a better vision of their health before cold and flu season begins.”
The Springfield Urban league will be at Stuart’s event with a mobile unit outside the library to provide Hepatitis C and HIV screenings. There will also be representatives from SIHF Healthcare to provide blood pressure and glucose screenings, along with diabetes consultations. The Caseyville Public Library will have free feminine hygiene products available for women and girls that attend Wellness on Wheels. This event is free and open to the public.
“It is incredible to see our community health service providers step up and offer these screenings for no cost to attendees,” continued Stuart. “I encourage everyone to come and take advantage of these free health services.”
