Health & Benefits Fair—October 31

Illinois Tech will host a Health & Benefits Fair on Monday, October 31 from 11 a.m.–1 p.m. in The McCormick Tribune Campus Center (MTCC) Ballroom. With Open Enrollment beginning Tuesday, November 1, this is your chance to meet with Illinois Tech’s benefits vendors and get all of your questions answered before making your 2017 benefit decisions.

Need your blood pressure checked or interested in getting a flu shot? Walgreens will be on-site providing complimentary blood pressure screenings for all attendees. Free flu shots will also be available for faculty and staff covered under Illinois Tech’s medical plans*. Participants must show their medical ID card, and space is limited so advance registration is required (click here to register). If you miss the chance to sign up, flu shots will also be available during the Biometric Health Screenings events later in November (see below).
