Wellness screenings and Benefits Fair Oct. 16

LLCC is offering wellness screenings and a flu shot clinic for all benefit-eligible employees on Thursday, Oct. 16 from 6:30  to 11 a.m. in the Trutter Center. See the  guide for details and instructions on how to register 2014 LLCC Wellness Screening Guide. NOTE ABOUT REMOTE SCREENINGS: Our wellness screening provider partners with Labcorp to offer a remote screening option. It has come to our attention that Labcorp no longer has a facility in Springfield or the surrounding area. The closest Labcorp facility is in Decatur. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We will address this issue for future wellness screenings.

Benefits Fair
During the wellness screenings, we have also scheduled a benefits fair. The benefits fair is an opportunity to talk one-on-one with various benefit providers and learn more about the benefits offered at LLCC. The attached benefits fair flyer-poster14 provides details of the various companies/organizations that will be represented at the fair. Attendees of the benefits fair will be entered into a prize drawing! More details to come.
