Affordable Care Act (ACA) Program at 31st Ward’s Annual Senior Citizen Health Fair


Staff members of the Puerto Rican Cultural Center’s ACA program attended the 31st Ward Annual Senior Citizen Health Fair, which was held on October 17, 2014 at St. Genevieve’s Church. Alderman Rey Suarez welcomed participants and encouraged everyone to get free flu vaccines and screenings (diabetes, blood pressure, osteoporosis, cholesterol, foot, glucose), as well as to visit all the different stations to get relevant information. All attendees seemed eager and receptive about what the different organizations had to offer. Many of them walked by the ACA table, asked about our services and about how we could help them, their relatives or their friends. It was a great opportunity to engage the community, spread the word about the upcoming open enrollment period (November 15, 2014 to February 15, 2015), and to create partnerships with other organizations.
