ALTON, Ill. – To give residents in the Metro East access to a wide variety of healthcare services, state Rep. Monica Bristow, D-Alton, and state Rep. Katie Stuart, D-Edwardsville, are hosting a Health and Wellness Fair on Friday, March 1 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Hatheway Cultural Center on the Lewis and Clark Community College Campus, located at 5800 Godfrey Rd. in Godfrey.

“During my time as state Representative, access to healthcare has been an important issue in my district, so I have hosted events like Mobile Health Units and an Opioid Summit. However, I feel it is important that I give my constituents access to all different kinds of healthcare organizations and amenities,” said Bristow. “I want to thank all of the organizations who agreed to participate in this Health and Wellness Fair which will connect residents of the Metro East with a diverse range of useful healthcare services.”
