House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn is in Santee today talking with residents about health care reform for his sixth annual job fair. Clyburn will discuss how new health care reform affects residents, and he will also talk about health disparities along the I-95 Corridor. That area has high rates of prostate cancer deaths among black men and complications from diabetes.
A Department of Health and Human Services representative will be on hand for the event to answer any questions people may have. There will also be interactive computer stations to provide participants with personalized information. The AP reports attendees can also show up to get free HIV tests and screenings for cholesterol, blood sugar, blood pressure, glaucoma and prostate.
