'Wellness fair' offers array of free services for women
Women can obtain referrals for free mammograms and cervical cancer, screenings, free vaccinations for influenza, pneumonia and shingles, blood pressure readings, Body Mass Index (BMI) calculations and more at a Women's Wellness Fair organized by State Senator Steve Stadelman.
Other services available at no charge include blood-glucose, cholesterol and HIV testing, depression and anxiety assessments, massage demonstrations and skincare consultations. Medicare enrollment advisers and weight-loss support groups also will be on hand. 
Harp and flute duo Emerald Wind will perform; Rockford Roasting Company, E-Z Dinners and Dragon Popcorn will provide refreshments. Admission and parking are free for the event from 1-4 p.m. Sunday, November 12, in Kresge Hall at Riverfront Museum Park, 711 N. Main St. in Rockford. 
"Health care, especially for women, remains a central public policy concern," said Stadelman, who began the annual event in 2015. "I believe very strongly that a woman's ability to pay should never stand in the way of her receiving basic health care -- especially preventive care."
