Illinois Health Fair Draws Crowds

The Southwestern Illinois Laborersʼ District Counci (SWILDC) held its 14th Health Fair on Saturday, March 10, at the Gateway Center in Collinsville, IL. The Health Fair was a huge success with more than 500 Laborers and their families participating.

With something to offer all ages, including games and activities for the kids, participants lined up early to enter. Local health providers offered attendees a wide range of checkups, including blood pressure tests, carotid artery screen hormone tests, PSA and wellness profiles, pension and welfare information, and wellness materials. Once the testing was over and the blood drawn, participants were treated to healthy choices of breakfast sandwiches and fruit.

“This event has literally saved lives over the years,” said SWILDC Business Manager Glyn Ramage. “We’ve had members who came by for a cup of coffee and were rushed to the hospital after a wellness checkup and screening. Checkups and prevention are just so crucial.”
