Springfield FlierSPRINGFIELD – Working to bring state services and free health screenings to seniors in Springfield, State Senator Andy Manar (D–Bunker Hill) and Representative Sue Scherer (D-Decatur) will host a senior resource fair from 10 a.m. to noon, Wednesday, Sept. 30, at Union Baptist Church.

“This is an opportunity to have service providers answer your questions, get information about programs and receive free health screenings. This brings public and private service providers together in one location,” Manar said.

"When I meet with seniors, they often tell me about how many state programs they depend on for their well-being,” said Scherer.

“I want to help make sure that they can get all the benefits of these programs with as few headaches and worry as possible. I encourage seniors to stop by this fair to get free health screenings and to speak directly with caregivers from area hospitals, public health agencies, and local programs.”

This is the third year Manar has hosted senior fairs throughout the district. It is free and open to the public.

This year’s fair features:
•    Information on senior programming and benefits from AARP, the Area Agency on Aging for Lincolnland and the Sangamon County Department of Public Health
•    Renew, update or replace a driver’s license or state ID at the Secretary of State’s Mobile DMV
•    Free health screenings, including blood pressure, cholesterol and diabetes provided by area hospitals and senior health organizations
•    The Illinois State Treasurer’s I-Cash program to check for unclaimed property and assets
•    Information from the Illinois Department of Veterans Affairs
