On Tuesday’s St. Louis on the Air, we heard from Missouri Senator Jill Schupp about a health-care fair in the 24th Missouri Senate district. There was a strong bipartisan effort behind the fair.

The fair will be held at the Overland Community Center.

"Yes, certainly, it is to serve the underserved but really this is for access of all different kinds of needs and ages," Schupp said. 

The event is open to all and will provide, free of charge, blood pressure and vision screenings, flu shots, health insurance navigation and resources from several local health organizations.

In addition, representatives of social service agencies will be on hand to help people find the appropriate follow up care if they don't already have a provider.
