Health & Resource Fair

Pembroke Community Consolidated School District #259, Senator Elgie Sims, and State Representative Nick Smith will be hosting a Health and Resource Fair on October 18th from 11am to 3pm in the Student & Family Engagement (SAFE) Center on campus of Lorenzo Smith School. This fair will feature resources for senior constituents including vaccinations, diabetes and hypertension screenings, and other important information regarding health plan options for the upcoming enrollment period. Open Enrollment for the Affordable Health Care Act Insurance Marketplace is from November 1, 2023 – January 15, 2024. Open Enrollment is the time of year to enroll in a new ACA Health Insurance Marketplace plan or renew or change your current plan to best meet your family's needs.

“Many members of our community lack accessibility to state resources and our mission is to bring those resources together in a centralized location so we can be fully informed on all that’s available to us. We are excited to partner with our local state legislators, and service providers and the positive effect that it will have on the families of Pembroke Township and Hopkins Park,” says Superintendent Dr. Nicole Terrell-Smith.

Committed vendors include IL Secretary of State, IL Department of Human Services, Aetna Healthcare, Meridian, Kankakee Health Department, Aunt Marthas, Catholic Charities, Iroquois Memorial, TRIO Educational Opportunity Centers, and more. Essential Smoothies Café is the lunch vendor and is sponsored by The Village of Hopkins Park and Pembroke Township.
