Mission Of Mercy Continues In Peoria

Illinois Governor Pat Quinn and Peoria Congressman Aaron Schock will attend the Mission of Mercy Dental Clinic at the Peoria Civic Center Saturday.

The clinic, that is offering free dental care, got underway Friday morning.

Over 400 dentists from around the state will likely see over 1,000 patients Saturday.

Governor Quinn will sign legislation at the event to expand access to healthcare for those in need.

Quinn recently announced that cuts made to Medicaid's adult dental program in 2012 will be restored in the fall.
