State Rep. Robert Pritchard, state Sen. Dave Syverson, the Family Service Agency and the Voluntary Action Center will host the 2013 Senior Health Fair from 9 a.m. to noon Thursday at DeKalb High School, 501 W. Dresser Road in DeKalb. The fair is free and open to all.

“I encourage senior citizens, their caregivers, and anyone approaching retirement to come to the fair to visit with care providers and learn about their services that can improve your life,” Pritchard said in a news release.

Screenings offered at this year’s fair include spinal, blood pressure, vision and hearing. There also will be diabetes counseling and an amplified phone demonstration for the hearing impaired.

“I am excited to be a part of this year’s event and to see so many helpful vendors under one roof,” Syverson said in the release. “Participants can register for a door prize, enjoy snacks and gather lots of information.”
