State Sen. Neil Anderson (Rock Island), and State Rep. Tony McCombie (Savanna) will host a free Senior Health Fair from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. October 19 at New Hope Foursquare Church, 2305 7th Avenue in Moline.

“The Senior Health Fair is a great opportunity for Quad City-area seniors to come out and learn more about the resources available to them not only in their communities, but also from the state. I hope a lot of people come out and take advantage of this resource,” said Anderson.

The fair, which is free and open to the public, will feature free blood pressure and hearing screenings, as well as free flu shots with Medicare B. Refreshments, giveaways, and free informational legislative brochures will also be available. More than 45 groups are participating in the fair.

“We are committed to assisting our seniors and their families become more aware of all the services that may improve their health, financial security, and overall quality of life," said Rep.
