GREENVILLE REGIONAL HEALTH FAIR 2008

 

Greenville Regional Hospital will present Health Fair 2008 on Friday March 14th, from 7am-5PM, at the Greenville First United Methodist Church on south Second Street. Over 40 national, state and local organizations and exhibitors will be participating, including 13 free health tests, an optional low-cost comprehensive blood test and a wide variety of health information. Childcare services will be provided by hospital volunteers.

 

Many health fair participants have learned of personal health problems by taking the blood test. Those planning to have the blood test done before 2:30PM, need to pre-register.  After that time, those who have not pre-registered will be accepted.  Greenville Regional Hospital's Health Fair is one of the largest in the area.  Last year approximately 3,200 people attended.  For more details call 618-664-2777.

CAR SEAT RECALLED DUE TO DESIGN FLAW

 

Consumers are being alerted to the recent recall of over one million Evenflo Discovery infant seats. Recent test results show the car seat could separate from its base in high-impact side collisions, making them unreliable in protecting the infants. The affected models include Evenflo Discovery Infant Car Seat 390, 391, 534, 534 and 552 which were all manufactured between April 2005 and January 2008.

 

The manufacturer will provide affected car seat owners with a supplemental dual hook fastener to ensure the seat remains attached to the base.  Consumers can order the fastener by calling 1-800-356-2229.

In Springfield last week, Governor Blagojevich outlined his $49.7 billion state budget proposal while Senate members continued their consideration of legislation in committees. According to Senator Frank Watson, the budget once again relies on spending, higher debt and more hits to businesses that employ Illinois citizens. There were some tax breaks to citizens and interest in passing a capitol improvement program. Illinois is 45th in the nation as far as job growth. Illinois has a 2.5% job growth rate, while Iowa has a 5.9% rate, Missouri 3.9% and Indiana 2.8%.
