SPRINGFIELD – Lt. Governor Sheila Simon will participate in the city of Springfield’s “Curb Your Car, Bike to Work” event on Wednesday. Simon, an avid cyclist, has previously participated in the annual event and often commutes by bicycle in Carbondale.
Later Wednesday morning, Simon will proclaim it Women's Health Day in Illinois with legislators and officials from the Illinois Department of Public Health, Northwestern University and the Southern Illinois University School of Medicine. Simon will urge downstate women to participate in a health survey so Northwestern researchers can better understand causes and patterns of women’s health issues.
"From biking to work to accessing regular health screenings, there are simple things we can do to keep ourselves and our environment healthier," Simon said.
